In Response to Re: What's on the Menu for New Years day???? What are your family tradition for the New Year????:
If we all ate everything that was supposed to bring us luck, long life, prosperity, and everything else we would never leave the table, or we would have to start at midnight in one time zone and eat around the clock. Pork, cabbage, black eyed peas, herring or some type of fish on and on....I think anyone lucky enough to have food on the table, a roof over their head and friends and family to share it all with is already blessed with luck and prosperity, the long life who is to determine what long life means? 100 years ago the lifespan is not what it is today by any means whose to tell that the next 100 years will bring. We can just lead the life we have to the best of our ability and share what we have with others. Ok down off my soap box. I wish all my friends here a Healthy and Happy New Year. And we do share with each other and I thank you for that. Wow did I get off track! I think maybe Gumbo. Possibly Dirty Rice. But it will be one or the other.

What you said is so true!
The economy is very bad, so many people without jobs and jobs are hard to find. It will be a rough Christmas for many and I hope and pray everything turns around this upcoming year.
I wish everyone a Safe, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!
