Bleigiessen or pouring lead is a favorite, and you can buy a Bleigiessen set in many stores during the month of December. A small metal figure is placed on a spoon and melted over a candle.
The molten metal is then poured into a cup of cold water, and the resulting shape is then said to tell you something about the year ahead. Read a list of the shapes' meanings here. In the spirit of bringing luck to the new year, lucky charms in the form of pigs, clover, ladybugs, and horseshoes are sometimes exchanged between friends.
In some regions, the traditional Silvester lunch is lentil soup. A mini stove range is set on the table, surrounded by bowls of prepared, but uncooked ingredients like cheese, potatoes, meat, and vegetables.

While you and your friends eat dinner, you can be sure that Dinner for One will be playing on television.
