For Greeks, a New Year’s celebration isn’t complete without Vasilopita. Similar to the King Cakes of Mardi Gras, Vasilopita contains a gold coin or trinket, which is said to bring luck to the receiver. Each New Year’s Day families cut the cake, blessing the house and bringing luck to the family for the coming years. Cake is sliced and given to all those present, in order from oldest to youngest. Depending on the culture and family, bread can also be sliced in order to symbolize God, saints, the poor, and the household.

Some people use Worry Beads as a means of expressing their wish to limit smoking or as an amulet to guard against bad luck. The Greek phrase κομπολόι has its roots in the expression “σε κάθε κόμπο προσευχή λέω”, or “in every knot, I say a prayer.”
Others use Worry Beads as a source of percussion by rubbing the lip of a drinking glass against the worry bead, which is suspended from one button. There are quiet and loud ways of handling the beads to make a noise.
