Or Happy New Year to all of you near and far!
I spent the last day of the year fishing. Yep. Fishing and fishing with two other women and not a whole lot of catching. After four hours, we went home with about six speckled trout, which is better than being “skunked”.
And now I’d like to know what your New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day traditions are. Granny Sue has quite a few interesting traditions over at her blog in West Virgina.
I’ll share ours and would you kindly share yours with us, too?
Typically, bayou folks cook a special meal tomorrow that will hopefully bring them good luck throughout the coming year. And they say wherever you eat your meal that day is where you will eat throughout the year! If that’s true, then I think I’ll take my food and go eat out back on the site of where the new house will be built!!!
New Year’s day menu boasts pork roast, served with smothered cabbage and black-eyed peas over rice.
The cabbage represents monetary fortune, but you have to take a leaf and put it in your wallet with your paper money (and remove the old one from last year!). The peas represent good luck, I think.
Thank you all for making this year a great one for blogging here about Life in the Louisiana Wetlands. Your continued visits and comments keep this blog going for all of us.
So please share your New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day traditions with us!
Happy New Year,
