Write a fictional story based on the “first footing” tradition i.e., the first person who enters a home after the stroke of midnight.

The “first footer” is said to bring either good or bad luck for the coming year, depending on factors like gender, age, or look. This could be an exciting starting point for a story by weaving in elements of cultural superstition, tradition, anticipation, and the unexpected twists of fate.
