new years traditions

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I was wondering how many people have a new years traditional meal? My family always has black eyed peas, ham, and boiled cabbage. Then we put a dime under the plates for good luck. I dont know exactly why or where this came from but like i said its tradition and mom swares its lucky for the new year.

Pork and Saurkraut. I just read that it is a tradition that started with the Pennsylvania Dutch.

For the past decade or so, I've been following a Latin tradition I read about in Robert Rodriguez's autobiography (the director of "Desperado" and others): at midnight, you walk out your front door with a suitcase in hand, throw twelve pennies out into the darkness, and eat twelve grapes -- and this is supposed to ensure travel, prosperity, and a sweet life in the new year.

But it hasn't been working for me... so this year, I started my own tradition: I walked out the front door, gazed up at Orion, and ate a fresh, cold Honeycrisp apple.

I figure at the very least, I had one heck of a fine bedtime snack!
