Why leave it to chance?
If you’re looking to ensure a “Prosperous and Healthy New Year” you just have to EAT RIGHT on New Year’s Day! And here in the south that includes the big 3:
From the coastal American South to Europe, people eat green leafy veggies—including kale, collards and cabbage—on New Year’s Day because of their color and appearance, which resembles paper cash. Belief has it, the more you eat, the more prosperous you’ll be (and the healthier, too!).
Considered good luck due to their penny-like appearance and abundance, these peas are traditionally served in a dish called Hoppin’ John. On the day after New Year’s Day, leftover “Hoppin’ John” becomes “Skippin’ Jenny,” meant to demonstrate frugality and promote prosperity in the new year.
A favorite throughout the year, cornbread is especially venerated as a New Year’s treat here in the south. Why? Its color resembles that of gold. To ensure extra luck, some people add extra corn kernels, which are emblematic of golden nuggets.
Sounds pretty good doesn’t it? So if you’re ready to “put your money where your mouth is” we know just the place to go: One Hot Mama’s in Hilton Head Plaza right near Sea Pines Circle!
