* In Spain, you eat a grape at the ringing of each bell
at midnight.

* Italians eat lentils for prosperity.

* Neapolitans (folks who live in Naples, Italy) ring out the
old and bring in the new by tossing their old pots out the
windows at midnight. Look out below!

* Germans eat herring at New Year.

* Pennsylvania Dutch eat sauerkraut for good luck.

* Lots of people won't do laundry on New Year's Eve or Day.
They get their house clean and the dirty clothes all done
before to clean out the gremlins and start fresh.

* And then there are those folks in New Orleans and all over
the South who MUST eat black-eyed peas for good luck. That
famous pea dish is called Hoppin' John...some think the name
got started by corrupting the French pois a pigeon or pigeon
peas. The lucky New Year dish was created originally in the
French colonies of the Caribbean.
