Food and New Year’s Eve
Food, booze, fireworks, and New Year’s Eve are inextricably linked in most people’s minds. The countdown to midnight passes far more quickly when you celebrate with a fantastic meal or enjoy a variety of snacks, no matter what types of dishes you prefer. There are lots of different traditions associated with the New Year, including the Scottish tradition of “first footing”, which involves calling on lots of neighbours in the locality and taking along a piece of coal for good luck, or the fresh green grape that should be eaten on every stroke of the bell in the lead up to the New Year. Some of the foods considered to bring luck for the New Year include lentils, pork, cornbread and black-eyed peas.
- In Turkey, smashing a pomegranate in your doorway is a good luck tradition for the New Year. The number of seeds scattered by the smashed fruit is an indication of how much luck you’ll have throughout the year!
- Sugar pigs are the lucky New Year sweet delicacy in Germany and children will surely adore this tradition.
- In Scotland, it’s not difficult to guess that traditional Scotch whisky is the drink of choice and it’s traditional to accompany this with spiced fruit loaf.
