      I know there are a lot of traditional foods out there to ring in the new year. In the Italian tradition, we eat lentils on New Year’s Eve for good luck. I’ve heard that black eyed peas are eaten in the South for the same reason.  

      Do you have any traditional New Year’s Eve foods??

        • No traditions.  I keep saying I’m going to start a new years tradition, but I never do.  Usually it’s leftover oyster stew from new years eve.

        • When I use to live in Canada, my family would always gather around a turkey. New Year’s Eve was always with friends.

          In France, New Year’s Eve is still with friends and we don’t gather with the family the next day. Everybody stays at home. Maybe it’s because we attend a Christmas eve supper, chritmas lunch and dinner at my husband’s mom’s with his close family (10-15 people), then another huge lunch with the extended family (50 people) between Chritmas and New Year’s.Christmas meal involves a starteroften a “verrine“, foie gras, scallops or snails as second course, then meat or fish with veggies and rice or patatoes as main course, salad, bread and plate of cheese as fourth course, then at last dessert. We do about three meals like that in less than 3 days. tongue out During those days, it seems you get out of table to have an “apero” then start all over again, go to bed, and do the same the next day.
