We all have our favorite foods that (supposedly) bring us luck in the upcoming year, and our friend Martha Stewart is no exception! I personally love black eyed peas for good luck, and cabbage for money, but Martha has found some lucky New Year's foods from not only the USA, but other countries as well, and that are pretty awesome, and very interesting, to say the least! Check out the list below, and let us know if you have any special food traditions at your house!


Spain: Grapes

Southern USA: Black Eyed Peas, symbolizing humility, and thus, good fortune

Italy: Lentils, tiny seeds symbolizing wealth

USA: Circular Foods, symbolizing 'Coming Full Circle'

USA: Lucky Coin, sometimes baked into bread, and whoever finds it gets good luck. (This kind of reminds me of the baby in the King Cake!) Foods shaped like coins are also considered lucky in some locations

Japan: Soba noodles

USA: Greens, symbolizing 'greenbacks'

USA: Pork, because it's fat, symbolizes a life rich with happiness

USA: Cornbread: symbolizing the glories of gold
