Black Eyed Peas Chicken Chili Recipe
Hoppin’ John is a symbol of good luck for the New Year. And after the year we have all had this past year, we don’t want to jinx anything for the next one.I feel that as long as you eat black eyed peas no matter what they are in, will bring good luck. When I was younger, my dad used to eat Herring at midnight. However, I’m not a fish person.
Another New Year’s superstition is to leave the door at midnight to let the old year out and the new year in unimpeded. Which we definitely want after this year.
