Happy New Years! I hope that so far you have had an amazing time! Do you have any traditions that you follow to bring you good things in the coming year? One of my favorite things to research is different traditions and the reasoning behind them.
One tradition common in the U.S. is that each person at the meal should leave three peas on their plate to ensure that the New Year will be filled with luck, fortune and romance.
Symbolizing prosperity, Black-eyed peas, popular in the South, represent pennies, while cabbage or leafy greens signify paper currency, and corn signifies gold.
