Pittsburgh tradition is pork roast with sauerkraut and hot dogs with mashed potatoes...it's bad luck not to have pork on New Years!


That's what my mom always said.

No, never thought to make a special New Year's Day dinner... I may have to start a new tradition. :)

According to what I was told growing up, you are supposed to have some kind of pork, like ham or something. Some kind of greens and black eyed peas. It's supposed to be for health, wealth and wisdom.

No. New Years Eve is Chinese food. We go into town for the afternoon for ice skating on the frog pond and the "family" first night activities. Then on to the chinese restaurant and finally home again for a game, movies, the stooges, sparkling cider and a ball drop :)

Yes I always have a special dinner and it varies every year. It all depends on what restaurant my husband takes me too because it's my birthday ...


 happy


LOL My birthday is the day before New Years Eve on December 30. I don't like to go out, because my husband loves to go out for New Years Eve. I don't like going out two days in a row anymore so I go out for New Years Eve for him. We stay home for my birthday.
