Onion or askella, the good luck charm of the New Year

The plant that we find almost all over Greece, grows between the rocks, in the fields, under the bushes, below bushes, it looks like a big onion and they say that it brings protection, good luck and health… that is why it was established as a New Year’s good luck charm. In Andros we call it “askela”. Happy New Year!
