2010 is close
I recommend you: wear red underwear this night and you will be lucky next year!!
Italians know and Auntie Wiki says: Italians call New Year’s Eve Capodanno (the „head of the year“) or Notte di San Silvestro (the night of St. Silvestro). Traditionaly there are a set of rituals for the new year, such as wearing red underwear and getting rid of old or unused items by dropping them from the window.
