Wishing You A Very Happy 2007!

A few of our traditions to share for New Year’s Day:

The meal – we have a traditional Southern USA meal on New Year’s Day: ham for health, black-eyed peas for good luck, turnip greens for wealth, and cornbread because it tastes so good with everything else. Dessert this year is peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream – because we like it!

We take our Christmas Tree down on New Year’s Day – so we carry the joy of the Season forward to the New Year.

We honor the belief that having a clean house on New Year’s means the house will be clean all year long – but no cleaning on New Year’s Day – sweeping or washing will sweep or wash your good luck right out!

We make sure that everyone in the family has at least a dollar in their pocket – to ensure they won’t be broke in the coming year.

We spend the day with as many loved ones as possible – so we’ll be surrounded by love all year long.

It’s not good to start a new project on New Year’s Day – but it’s a wonderful omen to complete projects – it guarantees that projects will be completed throughout the coming year!

Wishing you a joyous and prosperous New Year!

Godt Nytår

You know that whole turnip greens thing used to be cole slaw because none of her kids (including me) liked turnip greens. Just wanted o tease my mom everyone. Lots of love
