Aren’t familiar with traditional New Year’s foods? In many areas of the US (and even the world) eating certain foods is thought to bring good luck in the coming year. Greens, like collards, kale and chard, are thought to bring monetary good fortune. (Greens to “Make Green”?) Many Danish and German folk as well as U.S. Southerners participate. Same goes for pork! Pigs are thought to symbolize progress (pigs root themselves forward), wealth and prosperity and this juicy meat is eaten all around the world on New Year’s Day.  Read this great synopsis of traditional New Year’s good luck food for more info!
