    Oh good, i thought it was just me!!

    I have heard of black eyed peas for good luck but honestly, the one year I made that which was 2010, I had the worst year of my life so I don't think i'll be doing that again.
    I don't have a special tradition either. I'm sure whatever it is it will involve beer and some other adult beverage throughout the day!

    We too just have whatever we fancy at the time....Mustard Roast Ham this year, with all the traditional roast trimmings. Then Apple Strudel and custard for pudding, yummy

    We *LOVE* our Pork and Sauerkraut (and mashed potatoes!) on New Years day! its a Tradition ! now... who can explain the tradition?

    1) Pork - it is the only animal that moves FORWARD while eating, it puts its snout in the ground and 'roots' forward for its food - so you are moving FORWARD into the new year.

    2) Sauerkraut - I had to look this up, but the fall cabbage takes 60 days to ferment to make Sauerkraut, so late October means the 1st batch is ready around the first of the year. its a German thing.... however.... I personally say, that we eat the Sauerkraut, to get rid of all of last years .

    I may love it, but it does *NOT* like me ! LOL Its also called 'Pay the bullies back for their toots !
