Nothing in particular. I have some native Hawian friends that have Traditionally always had fish. Reason a fish always swims forward thus forward to the new year.

I'm from the South & always have pork, black eyed peas & collards on New Year's Day. The black eyed peas represents coins, the collards green backs (paper money) & I think the pork is for health or good luck. Not sure that it works but I'm not going to take any chances by not doing it. Happy New Year!

Also from the south and we've always had pork, black eyed peas, and collards also. I was never sure what the pork was for, but it was always said that the collards (green) represented money and the peas were for luck. This was always on New Year's day, not eve.

This year, I came across the kiosk in Publix where they cook and hand out samples and they were making something called "Lucky Pork and Beans". It is sort of like a chili that contains slow cooked pork butt roast, black eyes peas, and instead of collards, it has a premixed kale salad kit mixed in it. There are some other ingredients as well, but it was very good and I will be making some tomorrow.

Ditto with pepper sauce on the greens, chow chow on the peas, and some cornbread.

I'm going to be eating a lot of wierd food tomorrow, unless someone can provide bona fide scientific evidence that one of these foods will actually give me good luck.
