New Year Traditions

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, and I’m feeling good.

Does that line ring a bell? Yes, you guessed it, it’s from the movie “Last Holiday” starring Queen Latifah.

If you haven’t seen it, then you must do so because it’s a really cute holiday movie.

I haven’t posted in a while because I’m consistently thinking about where I want to go with this blog.

I don’t want to write simply put words together. I want to write to affect people’s lives.

My goal is to help people while I’m here on this earth.

The New Year is 2018.


Do you have a family tradition for this 1st day of the New Year?

First, we ring in the New Year as a family. We have a Champaign toast and state why we are grateful for our life and what we want for the New Year.

Next, we gather our suitcases. We open the front door and walk outside and then back inside the house to signify a year full of travel.

Next, our family tradition is that of food. We normally prepare a traditional “Good Luck” Southern meal.

What to eat in the New Year

1. Pork – “High in the hog” is a term we’ve heard for many centuries. Pork, is known to contain rich and delicious fat. Therefore, it’s symbolizes wealth and prosperity. So, we eat pork for prosperity throughout the year.

2. Black eyed peas – this delicious bean has been eaten on the first day of the year in many families. The juicy black eyed peas is for Luck.

3. Cabbage (Greens) This is an easy one to figure out. Greenbacks, Dinero, D’largent– any way you say, it means MONEY. So, it a healing of greens today

4. Cornbread Stuffing. The color of cornbread is usually golden. The gold signifies wealth and money. Eating it means you will have money to spend in the new year

How about a New Years resolutions?

I have stopped making resolutions numerous years ago because they are probably broken by the 2 week.

However, I have goals that I want to attain each year. I have daily goals as well.

Have you ever felt lost for words or what you want to do. It’s not a good feeling, but this is when we can take time to gast and pray for revelation.

Again, Happy Be Year and I look forward to figuring this thing out.
