Does every one eat pork and cabbage on New Years day?

I've done it my whole life for good luck.

Story I was told was the pork symbolizes always having enough food and the cabbage means always having enough cash

It was pretty universal where I grew up - not just with the Polacks and Irish folks either.

I had protestant friends in the neighborhood who always ate pork and cabbage of some sort on the 1st.

So since I have a nationwide sampling here to ask - I am curious

I was introduced to the dish in the '80's and now it fits in with my low oxalate diet due to a bout of kidney stones.

Good thing I love it!

I make cabbage and smoked pork hocks in the slow cooker too and eat that for a week also.

3. Most traditions I've been aware of emphasize round (coin-like) foods, e.g., black eyed peas,

grapes (12 eaten after midnight to give luck to each month--big in Spain), lentils (big in Germany), pomegranate (Middle East)... The round shape is supposed to bring good fortune.

Whatever works!

Itís a tradition that I never heard of.
The only one similar is Ukrainian Easter when one has cold, boiled fat back with horseradish and hard boiled eggs. Thatís along with the Paska.
Comfort food at its best.

As a kid in Detroit area, pork & cabbage, stuffed cabbage, latkes, beet soup, and only kowalsky kielbasa. As to the sausage both grandmothers & my mom had strong opinions about that brand of sausage, I was in my late 20s before I knew there were other brands. I haven't had that particular brand in years.

15. Of course. Most people who live in GA do, too. We eat black eyed peas,

greens, cornbread, carrot salad (or copper pennies) and pork of some kind. I usually fry up a bit of hog jowl if I can find it. If I find the kind without a lot of salt, I use it in my bird suet recipe, together with peanut butter, oats, and birdseed. The birds seem to like it a lot and sometimes it will last a couple days before a raccoon or possum carries it off.

Of Pennsylvania dutch country and pork and sauerkraut is real big in this area for New Year's day. You can go into any grocery store in the area and there is section with all selections of pork and right next to it, a big display of sauerkraut. So yes for 72 years I've heard of pork and sauerkraut.

how actually local some tradition might be.

I certainly never heard of this. Where did you grow up? Where else have you lived?

I did not grow up with a New Year's Day food, probably because growing up my mom, a nurse, would almost always be working that day. I first heard of the black-eyed peas thing from my sister when she lived for a time in the South.

Personally, I think consuming any unfinished champagne from the night before is a much better tradition to consider starting.

Most people make "hopping John" which is black eyed peas in rice with celery and onions and served with vinegar sauce or hot sauce or both. Of course homemade cornbread is also required, we make the Mexican variety which is so yummy and tie it together with a nice pork roast.

76. this year we had a delightful Persian dish made by my son in law's mother

which contained black eyed peas.

It was so good!!! She served it on New Year's Eve but we had leftovers the next day.

77. I know in the US, the "Irish" dish is Corned beef and cabbage, but in Ireland it is

Bacon and cabbage with boiled potatoes (and butter !).
