New Year’s Day typically marks the end of the holiday season. By the time New Year’s Day rolls around, Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa celebrations have wrapped up. The New Year represents a new beginning and affords the opportunity for a fresh start. Many people “ring in the new year” with rowdy parties that include plenty of noise when the clock strikes 12, and plenty of food for the celebrants in attendance. Although the meals served are often randomly chosen, many cultures believe that there are certain foods that represent good luck needed in a new year. Some of these foods include grapes, noodles, cakes and black-eyed peas. Additionally, pork and fish are universally considered meals that will help to provide good fortune in the new year.
