When I used to live in Guernsey, my island home till I was 43 years old and came to Alabama, US to start my life with my adorable American Husband , Danny

Neighbors would come around and bring us a small lump of black coal for good luck.
But nowadays here in America we have a lovely meal and then wait for Midnight and take a sip to Auld Lang Syne ...
