Be sure that you get all you laundry done before New Year's Day

Do not do, or have laundry to do on new years day as it is very bad luck.

Be sure to eat black eyed peas on new year's day for prosperity.

Any other traditions or superstitions?

  • Oh I never heard of this, good to know. We always do pork and sauerkraut in the crock pot. It's a PA Dutch superstition passed down through generations.

  • I've always heard that eating cabbage on New's Years day is for good luck. So, we eat it every year. I think we do it more now out of habit then actually believeing the myth.
