Luck & Money

Happy new year! As you know, you must eat some black eyed peas with rice (hoppin' john) and collard greens today. The peas are for luck and the greens are for money. Or maybe you are from Britain or some other classy place and you do not know about this tradition! Well, have you asked yourself why you didn't have any luck or money in 2007? It is probably because you did not eat black eyed peas or collard greens on January 1, 2007. Also, it is bad luck to wash clothes today, so watch out! In the grocery store the other day, two different people tried to tell Theresa that we are supposed to cook cabbage today, not collards! Are those people out of their minds?
