I grew up in the South. Every New Years' day we would eat blackeyed peas for luck. I have no idea why..

Yesterday, I was visiting with a friend and she told me they had cabbage (dollar bills) for luck for dinner on New Years' day.

Later another person told us they always had ham hocks..

I was wondering if there is something special you eat for luck. I'd like to know. I don't want to miss any opportunities..

My granny always had us eat sourkraut at midnight for a prosperous new year. She was a country girl of English descent so don't know if that had anything to do with it, sounds more German to me...

I like the cabbage idea. You could always put a little black pepper and turkey bacon in it for the ham hock effect. Not the same, but it will help...

Comment #2

We're having pot luck with some friends. Does that count?..

My dh's family has something about corned beef and cabbage on New Year's Day. I never ate it, and never knew why. My family didn't eat anything, but my Mom used to say that whatever you are doing at midnight on NY's eve was what you would spend the most time doing that whole new year. So far, that has always come true for me. (sigh), I usually work every NY's eve! lol. This is the first one I have been off in years! Guess what? DH works today...oh well.

(He will be home before midnight...).

Have a good one everyone!!!..

Our family has always eaten Ham, Cabbage and Black Eyed peas. EVERYONE has to partake, even if just a tiny bite. This year, I will eat my 12 black Eyed Peas and a bowl of cabbage. Can't break such an important tradition!..

We have pork spareribs, collard greens (money) and black eyed peas (luck). My mom is all geared up now getting dinner prepared for tomorrow. I need to get in and help her...she's not feeling well today...

When I lived in Mexico it was grapes on New Years Eve.....

Comment #7

Our family's tradition is sour kraut with kilbasa or pork. I won't be eating any kraut this New Years, so we'll see if the old wives tale about luck is true...

Comment #8

Mine was always a mix of the southern traditions (dad's family) and western PA traditions (mom). We always had kibasa and sourkraut along with black eyed pea and either greens or cabbage..

I am serving all of the above tomorrow...
