A little about "gouria":
Although the word "gouri" is associated with anything that brings good luck, the Gouri is a traditionally Greek New Year's gift. According to Greek superstitions, a good luck charm cannot be bought but rather given as a gift to someone. This is why the gouri is a symbolic gift exchanged between family members, friends, or business associates, wishing the recipient good luck in the New Year.
