    Talking New Years Tradition...

    So, we'uns down in south USA eat Black Eyed Peas on the 1st day of the year for good luck through the rest of the year.
    I was wondering what other traditions others follow across the Globe. Uh...ya'll.

    I always start the new year with an old silver dollar in my hand, its supposed to bring you good fortune money wise in the coming year.

    no Black eye peas or pickled herring for me

    Here in Greece . we start the year by cutting a Vassilopita it is a cake dedicated to st. Basil.

    anyway the head of the family takes this cake makes a cross on the cake and starts cutting pieces.

    first piece is for christ
    second piece is for the needy (the poor)
    third piece is for the head of the house hold
    and then the rest of the cake is cut into pieces with each piece being given to a member of the family in order of importance.
    for example
    mother
    oldest child
    second child
    etc first its the family of the one cutting the cake and then any friend etc that may be visiting etc.

    anyway.. inside this cake is a coin the person who finds the coin will have good luck for that year...

    Sour kraut and polish sausage at our house, I know, I live in Texas but the black eye pea thing is silly to me, we have always had kraut and sausage. Different strokes for different folks.

    Why don't you just blend up the saurkrat and sausage and drink it with the beer?

    The past six years that I spent in Japan I had to eat Japanese traditional New Year's food called osechi ryouri:

    That's one of the few reasons I'm glad to be back in the U.S.

    Sure will miss my fiancee's father giving us Kobe and Matsuzaka steaks though.
