Happy New Year! Along with this greeting usually comes the question of what did you do for New Year's Eve. Then sometimes the topic of traditional food or rituals that are suppose to ward off "Bad Luck" comes up in conversation. I even wrote about ours yesterday. Along with the coin bread we always have pork and sauerkraut and black eyed peas. That's something I did after marriage. Somehow I lived my life before without the magic of pork. Let's be honest here, it's not that lucky for the pig! Anyway. we do it every year. Do we really believe it will bring good luck? Welllllll.....I'm afraid to find out. So I make the food, eat just one black eyed pea, cut the bread with the coin and take a deep breath because somehow I just feel better afterwards. Oh, and to make it even sweeter, guess who found the coin?
