Sweet’s New Year Superstitions

From Sweet.


This should be easy…. no crying because I will have just drained the last dregs of brandy and danced in the open (naked) while the house is opened-up to let 2007 escape, I will kiss at midnight and eat black-eyed peas by noon…

Avoid Crying it is said that one should avoid breaking things or crying and wailing on the first day of the year, if you do not want to continue the pattern for the entire year.

Letting the Old Year Out at midnight, all the doors of a house must be opened to let the old year escape unimpeded.

Eat Black-Eyes Peas in the Southern part of the United States it is said that eating of black-eyed peas on New Year's Day will attract both general good luck and money in particular to the one doing the dining.

Kiss at Midnight it is believed that kissing at midnight ensures that affections and ties will continue throughout the New Year. On similar lines, it is said; to not do this would be to set the stage for a year of coldness.

Dance in the Open Air to dance in the open air, especially round a tree, on New Year's Day ensures luck in love and prosperity and freedom from ill health during the coming twelve months.

Drain the Bottle you could ensure yourself good fortune by draining the last dregs from a bottle of drink on New Years!
