Are there any dishes particular to your region or family for New Year's Day?

When I was growing up, Mom always made a ham dinner on New Year's Day. For my family, it turned out that another huge dinner a week after Christmas was too much -- so the big ham dinner morphed into ham sandwiches.

In the South, you're supposed to eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day to ensure good luck in the coming year. I made a pot of 'em today and ate some awhile ago -- even tho I came to the tradition late (didn't learn of it 'til I was an adult) and all those years *not* eating them as a kid didn't seem to affect my luck any.

Eat herring right after midnight.

Makes sense, Damelon.

Any earlier and you might not get that enthusiastic kiss at midnight...unless you are one of the lucky ones whose kissing partners are also herring fanciers.

Don't search for the answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

My parents (or Grandma when we ceöebrated there) usually had a cold/warm buffet. One part of it being a salad with cooked chicken tangerines, asparagus, mushrooms and mayonnaise. That's why it was chicken soup the next day.

Since I have my own family we either have a fondue or a buffet with friends. If we do buffet we usually give it a theme. This year it was "tex-mex" with few Spanish stuff in between - so lots of empenadas, tortillias, bean stuff, salsas, wraps and dips and stuff.

The head of a fish and a tower of doughnut holes held together with honey...

...oh right, that's for Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.

I wasn't raised with any particular New Year's Day food, but since learning how to do a Sheboygan-style brat fry, that is what I have been making. It is the one time of year I serve Aunt Nellie's red cabbage as a side dish. I like it, but not too often. Once a year is enough.

Alka-seltzer, ibuprofen... and eventually, giant omelette with ham and cheese.
