New Year’s Eve is just around the corner! Although many of us will venture out and attend a large New Year’s Eve Celebration full of hundreds of people and champagne filled flutes, did you know that over 75% of American parties are full of 20 people or less? Two Nine North wishes our friends, family and readers a very joyous New Year! Here are some tips from Two Nine North to bring in the New Year with a lucky bang!
• It is often thought that the first visitors you see after ringing in the New Year would bring you good or bad luck, depending on who you keep as friends and enemies. That’s why most people celebrating on New Year’s Eve often do so with friends and family.
• Items or food that is ring-shaped is also good luck. This symbolizes “coming full circle”, which is what one year does. Some cultures eat ring-like food through the evening and through the night to ensure that good luck will be bestowed upon everyone who eats. The Dutch often eat doughnuts.
• Black-eyed peas (usually with ham) are often consumed in certain parts of the United States. These are thought to bring good fortune in cultures around the world, not just in the U.S.
Celebrate the New Year with your loved ones; eat lots of black-eyed peas, circular foods and most importantly BE SAFE!
