In the South we do greens for money, black eyed peas for good luck, we did ribs for the pork part of the tradition. Cornbread.

I had 2 out of 4.

Our tradition is lobster, potatoes, artichoke, and champagne! This year, I tried a teeny siiiip of champagne and almost ralphed. My tastebuds have totally changed. The taste of alcohol was so overpowering in that one baby sip .BLEH!

We do this same Jillian, but ham instead of ribs. I had never heard of keilbasa, sauerkraut and mashed potatoes until I met my DH. It is a German tradition and popular up North.

Chances are we eat a lot of very different foods anyway. Food is a very regional thing, I've learned.

We eat a traditional Korean soup. It's rice cake and dumplings (similar to pot stickers for those used to Chinese food). The white color of the rice and dumplings signifies new beginnings for Koreans. We eat it on both New Year's (solar and lunar).
