In South Louisiana we have a New Year's Day tradition.
We must eat green cabbage, black eyed peas and ham. It brings love, luck and money in the coming year. If you miss one of the components, you risk missing whatever it corresponds to for the next year.
Andrew, who hates cabbage,, will always eat at least one spoonful of it at my house.
And for many years I have fed so many friends and family on New Year's Day, making sure we were well stuffed with the required foods to bring prosperity.
Today was no exception........lots of people are going to be very happy and much richer in 2016!
Happy New Year!
