Eating pork of any style on New Year’s Day is said to inspire progress throughout the year to come. According to German legend, pork is eaten on New Year’s Day because pigs look forward when they root for food, rather than chickens and turkeys, which scratch backward. Pigs are also plump, which signifies prosperity.

Eating black eyed peas, greens(Sauerkraut), and cornbread is said to bring money into your life throughout the New Year.  This tradition, which originated in the South is said to represent pennies, dollars, and gold.    These  three foods are supposed to be eaten together, as black-eyed peas are said to bring coins, greens bring folding money (dollars), and the yellow-hued cornbread promises gold.
