  • The tradition in our area is to eat pork and sauerkraut. The more you eat, the more luck you are to have in the New Year.

  • We eat pork and sauerkraut and I think it is a German tradition since so many around here are German. Have always done that growing up and have continued since I moved out.

  • In our family, we've always eaten fried pork chops (not sure why), black eye peas over rice for luck and collard greens for money! lol everyone I know does this, it's our tradition!

  • We don't eat any of the foods for luck, we smoke a beef tenderloin every year, and have it with a nice bottle of wine.

  • We have black-eyed peas and tamales to bring us good luck and prosperity in the new year. It's more a tradition than a superstition.

  • My grandmother always give us a bottle of that sparkling grape juice for Christmas so we always save it for New Years and I plan a meal that can go with it, though its not the same meal every year....
