What do you traditionally eat on New Year’s?

Black-eyed peas for good luck. My grandmother always tried to convince us to eat collard greens too, but they're so nasty, I can't do that.

I usually roast a whole turkey either New Year’s night or New Year’s day depending.

I'm Haitian- so new year's day is also Haitian Independence day- and we drink squash soup.
The younger members of the family also go around to the older members of the family for their new year's blessings.

I actually love this tradition.

So much for my wanting to make something different in the side dish area this year.

How do you make the squash soup?

What are you and Phoenix going to do for the new year? Are you going to start a tradition of your own, you think?

No traditions, here, unless foregoing parties and going to bed before midnight is a tradition.

This year I will be having dinner with some friends. Not sure whether we'll all stay until midnight, though!

Is it easy to find turkey? I can only get frozen turkey here since it's imported meat. And compared to the US or Europe, it's pricey, too.

Actually, finding turkey meat during the year is not always easy, especially this past year I’ve rarely come across turkey meat, but for the New Year you can find whole turkey as they specially have it available.
