    Nothing particular.  Usually something greasy to help the hangover :)

    New Year's has never been a traditional/family holiday for us.

    We don't have a traditional menu.

    We have been celebrating at home since the year Joey was born.  For the first 4 or 5 years, we did lobsters.

    Last year we did ribs and a brisket in the smoker.

    This year was going to be pizza, wings, dips.

    We usually order from the same Italian place every year, but we have a gift card for Mexican so we are getting that. Plus sparkling cider, brownies, and a new dvd. We will be in bed by 10...but we're sleep deprived already this year

    I grew up always eating pork and sauerkraut on New Years day. I also have always made it for my family if we stay home that day.

    Tomorrow we are headed to MIL's house and I *think* that is what she is making. She is awesome and I love her, but Lord help me because the women in that family can not cook a thing Stick out tongue. I'm sure I'll choke it down anyway.

    My family always had black-eyed peas and cabbage, along with other stuff.  DH's family always had pork and sauerkraut.  Now we have all of them.

    I've never heard of pork and sauerkraut on New Year's Day (and I'm part German!). What's the origin/reason? Anyone?

    I have never heard of the pork/saurkraut thing either.  Intesesting! We usually have ham/sandwiches/salads on new years day, but just b/c it is a hanging out kinda day. We sometimes do chili.  For NYE, if it is just MH and I, we usually do filets or some type of beef/fancier dinner than usual.  The past few years we have gotten together with friends, and done pizza/apps with the kids. We are doing that tonight.

    We usually do seafood on NYE.  Today it's crab cakes.

    We usually go to my friend's for a party on New Year's Day and will just eat munchie/appetizer food.

    We do cabbage and ham. Basically, you suppose to eat something green to represent money so you'll have money come to you in the new year.

    I know lots of people who eat collards for this reason too.

    Its just my family's tradition is boiled cabbage and ham. (with cornbread)

    Ditto this exactly!

    And we don't really have a specific fare that we eat. When I was growing up, it was always homemade Chinese food in NYE but since we've grown up and kind of scattered, our New Years' plans vary from year to year.

    Pork

    The custom of eating pork on New Year's is based on the idea that pigs symbolize progress. The animal pushes forward, rooting itself in the ground before moving. Roast suckling pig is served for New Year's in Cuba, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, and Austria?Austrians are also known to decorate the table with miniature pigs made of marzipan. Different pork dishes such as pig's feet are enjoyed in Sweden while Germans feast on roast pork and sausages. Pork is also consumed in Italy and the United States, where thanks to its rich fat content, it signifies wealth and prosperity.
