As long as I can remember on New Years Eve my family would order Chinese food and ring in the new year with some General Tso’s chicken and a few Crab Wontons. Five years ago my wife and I moved to Texas from the Boston area and to our surprise… No one in Texas orders Chinese food on New Years Eve! Eating Chinese food on News Years Eve is a regional tradition of just the New England area. My question to you is simple. What will you be eating tonight as you watch the ball drop?
Update – It appears eating black eyed peas is quite popular here in the South. It only took me 5 years to recognize this.

We had Chinese for New Year’s Eve – I thought it was a
tradition everywhere in the US, but apparently in Arkansas (our
temporary home) no one does it, either.
