I hope everyone has a Safe & Happy New Year's Eve!

A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other. ~Author Unknown

      Happy New Year everyone❕🎉

      What's this about black-eyed peas & collard greens bringing you good luck❔😱
      Seriously...someone please explain this weird tradition/superstition...

      *Also, do you HAVE TO eat them ON New Year's DAY, or is there a grace period of like a few days or something❔

        My neighbor eats chittlings, collards and greens and is from the South. Our family eats sauerkraut and hot dogs or Norwegian lutifish depending on which family member we are visiting. It's our nationality tradition. Yes eat on New Year's Day for good luck! What's your nationality tradition?
        Happy New Year to all!

      Oh, it depends on your nationality❔
      Well, I guess I'm a Mutt, lol. Amused
      I asked my mom long ago and she rattled down a list of about 10-15 different nationalities.😱
      She did say, however, that she thinks I'm mostly Russian on my dad's side & mostly Italian on her side.
      So - I guess I go w/Italian & maybe Russian too❔
      I can't think of any Russian foods. But I DID have a Pizza Pocket. Does that count...haha...good luck to me❔

        Just think you can enjoy a variety of nationality foods and have Good Luck throughout the year! We mostly do the tradition for having a day filled with memories of who ate the most! Big Grin
