It’s a New Year once again! It’s the time when families and friends get together and celebrate. But do know what to serve your guests especially when they come from different countries? Here are tip on what people with different customs eat to celebrate the New Year! 

·  Eating noodles at midnight is customary at Buddhist temples in Japan.

·  It is a Cuban tradition to eat 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight. The 12 grapes signify the last twelve months of the year.

·   Eating pickled herring as the first bite of the New Year brings good luck to those of Polish descent.

·  In the southern United States, it is believed eating black-eyed peas on New Year's Eve will bring luck for the coming year.

·  Also from the south comes the custom of eating greens such as cabbage, collard greens, mustard greens, kale or spinach to bring money.

· One more from the Southerners: eating cornbread will bring wealth.

·  The Southern custom of eating greens can be found in other cultures as well, although the cabbage can take many forms, such as sauerkraut or even kimchee.

·  In the Philippines, it is important to have food on the table at midnight in order to insure an abundance of food in the upcoming year.

·  Boiled Cod is a New Year's Eve must in Denmark.
