    I wear red underwear on New Years eve and leave silver coins on the windowsill. My other half insists on eating black eyed peas cooked with a coin. I have a friend who eats green grapes and someone else I know runs around the block at midnight carrying luggage.

    Greg,

    it's been such a long time... since we last talked!

    Well, it just crossed my mind that we like to eat gnocchi for the New Year. I think we owe it to the many Italians who settled in Brazil.

    You can substitute sweet potato or manioc for the potato.

    Blessings to you,

    JC

    On New Years eve my parents eat 12 grapes each at the stroke of midnight, you are supposed to make a wish as you eat each one. I think it's an old tradition from Spain.

    I found something about it on Wiki and it said that it also can represent each month, and if you eat one that is not as sweet for that month it means it will be a tough month.

    Happy New Year to you, buddy.

    I'm from PA and my family has always has pork and sauerkraut on New Year's Day. It's our German heritage.
