'Lucky' foods for the New Year. In addition to the aforementioned "lucky" foods, there are also a few to avoid. Lobster, for instance, is a bad idea because they move backwards and could therefore lead to setbacks--love the superstitions :))
New Years Day Dinner- my parents made this faithfully on New Years Day. Collards for green money - black eyed peas for change and ham hock for the fat of the land. Eat it on that day you were assured to have it all year!
