New Year, new you?

The words ‘new year, new me’ can be heard echoing all around us as we bid farewell to yet another year and prepare for the next 365 days of 2020. Celebrations, the exchange of presents, lights and decor, and joy are all significant of the festive period, but what is more specific to New Year is something we all still believe exists - New Year’s resolutions. We all strive to be better versions of ourselves and hope to see self-improvement, but most of the time these hopes are just fallacies, and quite ironically we hardly ever see any change.

Fortunately for us, there are a few foods that are considered lucky to eat on New Year for various reasons, which may include fulfilment of resolutions. According to Chinese and many other cultures around the world, eating some foods is known to turn your fortune around. These delicacies have great significance and are deeply rooted in century-old beliefs. So believe or not, it's always worth giving it a shot this New Year to try your luck. From black-eyed peas of America

01/ Noodles

It’s customary to eat long noodles during the Chinese New Year in Hong Kong as a part of their tradition. It signifies longevity, on New Year’s Day. It is said that the noodles are never to be broken or shortened during the cooking process. The length and unsevered preparation of noodles are also symbolic of the eater's life. These can be either fried and served on a plate, or boiled and served in a bowl with their broth. Hong Kongers have multiple styles of eating noodles, be it with congee, fish balls or more.

02/ Black eyed peas

You might think of the band, but we’re talking about what most people are familiar with - lobia. The bean’s association with good luck dates back to the American Civil War, when black eyed peas were originally used as livestock, which is why they’re also called cowpeas. When a city in Mississippi was cut off from food supply for nearly two months, it was this cattle feed that saved their lives. Since then, it has been associated with good luck, and is eaten in many countries all over the world on New Years as a lucky charm

03/ Grapes

It is believed that eating 12 fruits — one for each stoke of the clock at midnight — will bring 12 months of good luck. This continues to be a popular custom in the United States and Europe.

04/ Fish

Chinese cuisine experts believe that Chinese word for "fish" sounds like the word for "abundance." This is one of the many reasons why fish has become one of the luckiest foods in the world.

05/ Doughnuts

It is believed that the circular shape of ringed foods like bagels and doughnuts is said to mimic the year having come full circle. Not only are they considered good luck, they also happen to be deliciously satisfying breakfast items.

06/ Nuts

Nuts symbolise new life. They are often used as gifting options to friends and family during Christmas and New Year for a lucky start. During these festivals cakes, muffins and other desserts are stuffed with nuts for the very same reason. An interesting fact, in some cultures a special cake is made with nuts and coins stuffed, baked during the New Year as a symbol of continuing prosperity.

07/ Oranges

Golden coloured fruits like oranges are considered to be lucky as per Chinese tradition. Tangerines are said to bring wealth while oranges are known to be your good luck charms. Both these fruits are widely used while celebrating Chinese New Year. Also due to their plentiful harvest during this time, these citrus fruits also signify abundance and happiness.

08/ Lentils

Eating dal shouldn’t be a problem for many Indians. If you’re superstitious and Indian, consider your new year blessed, for the staple is associated with bringing good luck. Its association with good luck is simple - lentils resemble coins, so they are said to bring wealth and prosperity.

09/ Pomegranate

Seeds are a metaphor for fertility and life, and although many fruits contain seeds, none is considered to bring luck for the new year. In Greece, families smash a pomegranate against their front door when the clock strikes 12 on New Year’s Eve. The more seeds fall out, the more luck and prosperity the family is said to have in terms of money and continuity of life. Thus began the global tradition of associating pomegranates with good luck on New Year.

10/  Leafy greens

Spinach, collard greens, kale, and other leafy greens of the kind might not be the most appetizing foods to be included in your New Year’s celebration menu, but you might want to consider including them, especially if you’re superstitious. The colour green symbolizes a lot of positives like renewal, progress, freshness, growth, and wealth. Moreover, leafy greens resemble money when folded, again symbolizing wealth and prosperity.
