In Columbia, 'old year dolls' are burned at the end of New Year's festivities in order to get rid of any bad things from the old year.
In Spain people eat 12 grapes as midnight strikes on New Year's Eve. If you eat one grape and make a wish each time the clock chimes you'll have good luck in the new year.
In Stonehaven, Scotland, people parade through the streets carrying baskets of fire which they throw into the sea at the end of the celebration procession.
