Here in the States, it is traditional to have black-eyes peas on New Years Day for good luck. Is there a traditional food in your part of the world to eat on New Years Day for good luck for the upcoming year? Just curious what the traditions are in other parts of the world? :wink:

I have a big old pot of black-eyed peas and ham hock on the stove right now to serve with cornbread later today :D :D (I need all the luck I can get this year) 8) 8)

Wishing everyone a very very very Happy New Year. May this next year be the best ever for you all :wink: :) :D

ooo that's an interesting one, i'm not sure if we have a traditional new year's day meal here.

my family were never big on traditions like that & a lot of them get lost through the generations. i would be interested to know tho.

People eat on New Year's? I thought that day was traditionally spent sleeping and curing hangovers from the night before... :wink:

I'm not sure about food, but where my parents live in Germany (coastal tourist town at the North Sea), there's the tradition of "Neujahrsanbaden." Not sure how to translate that... It involves taking a dip in the freezing waters of the North Sea on New Year's Day with music and lots of cowardly spectators. Apparently this year there were more than 80 brave (or maybe still boozed) bathers.

MmMMMMm ..Corn bread yuummmm :D

For me this is the first new year on my own with the love of my life 'Shelly' so today is spent cupboard raiding!!!

So I guess my only tradition is too keep enjoying life

Don't know of any UK tradition but read that in Italy they have lentils and sausages for good luck so similar to your beans and ham hock.
I had lentil curry today but not sure if that counts :)
