New Year traditions in America

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Bob Graham

In the U.S., New Year's Day is becoming a time to relax and recover from the previous holidays.

Morning hours can include watching the spectacular Rose Bowl Parade on television and later seeing the

game. Americans generally ignore the goodluck shenanigans that are popular in other countries. But a

large percentage of us still think we can cook and eat our way to a prosperous new year.Corned beef and

cabbage is one lucky choice because cabbage leaves signify money in this and other cultures. Many people

think pork should be included in the New Year's meal. For hundreds of years, the hog has signified

prosperity.Black-eyed peas, hog jowls or ham are lucky foods in some areas as is rice.One activity is

becoming a New Year's Day event. You hear bragging about it the day after. Yes! They took down the

Christmas tree. Making New Year's resolutions is an admirable New Year's Day Most of us have given up on

making a list because one or two are more than we can handle anyway. If you haven't seen over the

holidays, it's nice to visit relatives on New Year's Day. In at least one rural community, men and boys go 

rabbit hunting while women and girls make dinner.
