Divination for the old New Year

It was necessary to observe how the grain lay down: one by one or in groups, covering the entire floor or eating bald spots. Then the grain was carefully harvested and stored until sowing, and then mixed with the seeds and sown fields.
To find out what this year promises the family, they cooked fertile porridge. Late in the evening, the oldest woman in the family followed the grain to the barn, and the oldest man followed the water to the well. After that, the whole family went through the grits, while maintaining complete silence, and put the iron in the furnace. At that moment everyone had to get up from the table and bow to the belt of porridge with the words:
"Blessed porridge, fertile porridge, tell me what awaits us next year."
If the finished porridge ran out of the cast iron or burned, and the iron cracked, then such signs promised the family trouble and various misfortunes. This mess was thrown into the flowing water, so that she took with her all the trouble. And if the porridge turned out to be ruddy and crumbly, then the year must be waited for good, successful in everything.The porridge was left on the table, and in the morning they were eaten by the whole family straight from the iron.
In the southern regions of Russia and in Ukraine, the custom of generosity is common.
