May Your New Year Start Swimmingly
If you need to find me tomorrow between 1 and 3p.m. I'll be in the pool.
POLAR BEAR TIME!
Happy New Year everyone! Be safe and have a fantastic time tonight!
We're having a few neighbors over for sausage, black eyed peas, and tamales.
What is your New Year's tradition?
(We have black eyed peas for good luck)
Many parts of the U.S. celebrate the new year by consuming black-eyed peas. These legumes are typically accompanied by either hog jowls or ham. Black-eyed peas and other legumes have been considered good luck in many cultures. The hog, and thus its meat, is considered lucky because it symbolizes prosperity. Cabbage is another "good luck" vegetable that is consumed on New Year's Day by many. Cabbage leaves are also considered a sign of prosperity, being representative of paper currency. In some regions, rice is a lucky food that is eaten on New Year's Day.
