There have always been traditional foods that people serve for various reason at the New Year's dinner in Europe, American, and other areas historically. See link below:

What are your traditional foods and what will you be making?

Happy New Year,
Vicki

Starting a new tradition this year Vicki. Going out for Thai food to the best restaurant in the city and I cannot wait.

My brother (a very very smart guy) ordered in from them one night while here on a visit and it was the best Thai food (or any food) that I ever had.

After an hour he called the restaurant and demanded to speak to the manager. When the guy came on the phone I'm sure he thought there was some problem with the order but my bro praised him left, right and centre and gushed all sorts of compliments about the food.

So tonight when I made a reservation, the manager answered the phone and recognized the phone number on his call display and, viola, I have now reserved the best table in the room. I can't wait for New Year's Eve.

It pays to be kind :)

Most of my friend have traditionally made either pork and/or black-eyed peas. One of my American friends from Cleveland who is Slovenian always make Keibasa Sausage and sauerkraut on New Years day.

I have gone out many times on New Years eve with friends to have Chinese food....but love Thai food.

Have a wonderful and Happy New Year, Mar.

Love ya,
Vicki

Happy New Year!

Beginning New Years Eve, tradition calls for lots of champagne -- French, Californian and Sovetskoye Shampanskoye - if you ever find this, make sure you get the ones made in Russia, Moldova or Ukraine, not Latvia - blech.

Then lots of Russian and German salads and Roast Pork and Duck.

Yes, I put on some weight...
