good luck foods for new year's day

In many Asian countries, long noodles are eaten
on New Year's Day in order to bring a long life.

A common good luck food in the southern United
States, black-eyed peas are thought to bring

In Germany, Ireland, and parts of the
United States, cabbage is associated with luck and
fortune since it is green and resembles money.

Thought to resemble coins,
lentils are eaten throughout
Italy for good fortune in the New Year.
Long associated with abundance and fertility,
pomegranates are eaten in Turkey and
other Mediterranean countries for luck in the New Year.

In North America, Asia, and Europe, people eat fish to
celebrate the new year. In some countries,
people associate fish with moving forward
into the new year since fish swim forward.

While I’m here today, I wanted to share some of my "Tablescaping Essentials" with you. I have a whole page on the Amazon website with my favorite picks for setting a beautiful table.

Quite often time is of the essence, and I have last minute projects or events to work on, so I turn to Amazon for one or two day delivery. You’d be surprised at how many amazing items they have to offer! And I'm constantly updating this page with my new favorites. 

You can check it out here, at Tablescaping Essentials.
