Do you do any special things? Well, I always make the soup of lensil so that I have a lot of money. I do not like this soup but I eat the whole , that I make. What's more everybody must eat it in my family, because I do not let them to avoid to eat. ;) Now I hear that the last day of the year we must not take out the rubbish! Do you know some similar superstitons?

the one that comes to my mind is an old english custom where the first person to visit you in the new year should bring you a piece of coal and if he comes in your door should have dark hair... thats a very old one they don't have much use for coal anymore...

In the United States, there are different superstitions for different areas of the country. The area in which I live has the superstition that if one cooks and eats black-eyed peas they will have good luck the entire new year and if they prepare and eat collard greens (kind of like spinich) they will not be broke (have no money) in the entire new year. Other parts of the United States say that one must cook sour kraut and ham, still other parts of the United States say one must eat corned beef. Oh well, I have rambled long enough. Best of luck to you in the New Year!
