Does every one eat pork and cabbage on New Years day? [View all]

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
