  • It's not really a big food holiday. It's just whatever you want to do.

  • We personally don't have any traditional foods, but I have heard of the black eyed pea tradition.

  • I've heard of the black eyed pea tradition, but have never done that, I think its more in the south? Anyway, there is no set menu for New Year's Day. We usually have the last of our indulgent foods as our diets always start the following Monday =). Gotta clean out the fridge of all the fattening stuff and refill with the diet food, sigh.

  • I think most people make whatever they want but certain foods are said to bring "good luck in the new year"

  • I grew up on Pork & Sauerkraut on NYD for good luck.
