An ancient German custom is Bleigiessen at New Year’s Eve. A candle is lit, and small chunks of lead (well, nowadays more environmentally friendly wax) are melted in a spoon held over the candle. The molten lead is quickly poured into a bucket of ice cold water, hardening almost immediately. Each person around the table tries to figure out the shape of the hardened lead or wax because the shape tells a person’s future for the year to come.
