Why do some southerners eat black-eyed peas, hog jowls and greens on New Year’s Day?

I’m from Alabama…but I’ve never eaten these for New Years. Never cared for black-eyed peas or hog jowls, but give me a mess of greens and cornbread, anyday! While I’ve been in Japan, I do eat Osechi every New Years. What do you eat for New Years? Share in the comments, below.

A new year has begun, and we get to enjoy osetchi again this year! The traditional osechi is very elaborate, and can be very expensive…depending on how it is prepared. We always just put together our favorite items, and we enjoy it. Here are some photos from this years osetchi, but click the link below to find out more!
