We always eat black eyed peas for good luck to start the new year. A very old Southern custom.

Watch all dirty clothes, keep no left-over cooed food, say a rather lengthy-starting 12:00 prayer accompanied with songs asking God for all wishes for oneself, for every family memeber, for relative, and for our countries and the wohole world.

We eat collard greens and black eyed peas for New Year's Day. A low country tradition.

When I was growing up we always cleaned our house and put money in our pockets so we will not be broke for the new year. We also ate black eyed peas and ham hocks with corn bread for good luck. Not to mention we prayed from midnight until 12:01 am for God to bless us in the new year. Now we just pray, eat food and play games together as a family!

Leave money outside on Dec.31 and then bring it into the house on Jan. 1 to ensure that the new year will bring more income into the home than the past year. The trick is to make sure that you bring in more money than you left the house with. So don't spend any while you are out or make sure you have left enough to overcome what you spent.

I make a huge pot of cream of potato soup with turkey bacon and baby red.potatoes. Everyone seems to like it, and sometimes a second bowl is worth a prayer to get one.
