Tomorrow is the beginning of a new year. Get ready for good luck by following some of these food traditions that represent many cultures. Do you know why it is good luck to eat pork or ham on New Year’s Day? Find recipes for New Year’s cookies and cakes, dating back to 1796. The menus for Creole meals from 1901 might guarantee good luck, but they are also guaranteed to give you a stomach ache if you were to eat everything on the menu. Eat something green and gold on New Year’s Day and you will have good luck for the year--according to tradition.
