On New Years Day, several Facebook and Twitter friends were posting about eating Black-eyed peas for luck. I've never consumed a BEP on NYD ... and maybe in order for things to be different, I need to eat differently?
Growing up, my mom would make pork & sauerkraut on New Years Day. I don't eat pork and sauerkraut makes me want to .... do something really gross. It smells and tastes terrible.
The hubs wanted us to have change in both pockets and jingle it at midnight. That I've heard of before and think that I did something similar once. I put some change into a change purse and jingled it on New Years Day. I can't remember the result.
So this year, we did nothing. No change, no peas, no sauerkraut. We just woke up, drove ourselves home and took another nap. As still somewhat of a newlywed, I do want to instill traditions into our family of two. Maybe the family will grow and it is something we can do with a larger family. But if not, I still want something that the hubs and I can look forward to each year.
