Whatever you do, don’t forget those black-eyed peas or Hoppin’ John, a tradition in the south that is thought to bring good fortune in the coming year. Collard greens and corn bread are also thought to bring prosperity in the new year (greens are the color of money and corn bread is a “gold” color, also symbolizing prosperity). There are multiple stories as to the origins of these superstitions, but regardless of how and why they got started, they are all hot and delicious for a January day and are a fun tradition for many.
