New Year’s Superstitions
Happy New Year everyone! Out with the old, in with the new for 2021 right? What is something that you do every year, at the beginning of the year, to ensure that you will have a good year? In my family, we grew up believing that if we eat our black eyed peas every January 1st, we would have good luck for the rest of the year! Does it work? Who knows, but this girl is not willing to take that chance.
New Year's superstitions are what we will call them. KIRO7.com shared some popuarl superstitions and here are some I found most interesting:
Seal that kiss
Don’t mess around with this one if you want harmony in your relationship this year. Legend holds that the first kiss of the new year should be with your beloved at the stroke of midnight so you stay happy and together for the next 12 months.
Don’t wash those clothes
This is an odd one. According to folklore, if you wash clothes on New Year’s Day, you’ll be “washing for the dead” or washing a loved one away -- meaning someone in your household will die in the coming year. Get your laundry wash, dried, folded and put away by New Year’s Eve.
Buy the right kind of food
While you want food in the pantry and refrigerator, make sure it’s not chicken or lobster. Why, you ask? Because both of those animals walk backward. You want to move ahead in the new year.
So what superstations do you have when it comes to luck in the new year. I'd love to hear them. After the year we just went through, any additional luck I can get will certainly help.
