    New Years Day Traditions

    What if any New Years day traditions or traditional meals do you have?

    Around here it's black eyed peas and cornbread. It's supposed to bring luck and prosperity in the New Year. Some people also have cabbage, which is supposed to bring money.

    I make a backup of my the previous year's computer files and create a new folder the new year.

    We eat black eyed peas at my house. There is also a superstition that says you can't wash clothes on New Years Day. I haven't figured out that one yet, but I have a load of laundry my dad won't allow me to wash until tomorrow! HAHA.

    Black eye peas, cornbread, and spinach for me since I refuse to eat collards, turnip greens, or cabbage. *gag*

    I also clean if I'm not working. I don't know why, but it's just one of my things.

    Ok, so I just ate lunch. Blackeyed peas, pork tenderloin, and hog jowl....yum. My dad is a great cook!

    My only concerning is pronouncing hog jowl so that Term can understand what I am trying to say! HAHA.

    So if you put a dollar in will you have even more prosperity? Or what about $100?

    I don't get the New Year's superstitions. I'll save that stuff for the witch doctors.

    Every year we have ham, cabbage, black eyed peas, and cornbread. Just finished mine. It was done right as I was about to leave for work, so I took it to-go. One of my favorite meals of the year.

    If I'm not traveling on New Year's day, my sister and I host brunch which evolves into dinner for our whole family. Otherwise, we all go out to an early dinner on New year's eve.

    Up to this point, the only things mentioned that sound the least bit appetizing are sauerkraut (only with brats though), pork tenderloin, and possibly cornbread.


    Everything else sounds/is NASTY!

    Hog Jowl?? Yuck.
