Lucky foods on New Year's Day

Posted by ESC on January 01, 2004

I can't remember that we had this custom in southern West Virginia when I was growing up. But I've picked up the habit of eating blackeyed peas on New Year's -- just in case. I knew it was a southern habit, but this article says the Greeks eat blackeyed peas also.

Do you folks outside the U.S. try to boost your luck with any certain food item?
