Desserts

 

Black-eyed peas and other legumes have been considered good luck in many cultures, as it symbolizes prosperity.

 

 

In Turkey pomegranates symbolize good luck for the coming year because of the red color and the shape of the seeds, which represent money and prosperity.

 

 

 

Many African Americans make a type of coin-shaped cookie called Benne Wafers for good luck in the new year, or as part of the celebration of Kwanzaa.

 

 

In Greece sweet breads often contain coins, and the person who gets the slice with the coin will have good luck that year.

 

 

In Spain, Portugal, Mexico, Cuba, Ecuador, and Peru, it is often traditional to eat 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight, one for each month in the coming year.

 

 

 

Cooked greens are consumed at New Year's in different countries as they are thus symbolic of prosperity and economic fortune.

 

 

In Japan buckwheat Soba noodles are symbolic of longevity and lasting good luck.
