Do you know why black-eyed peas are lucky on New Year's Day? As with most superstitions, there are several answers to the question. Typically, the belief that black-eyed peas are a lucky New Year's meal is especially popular in the south, so it has to do with our history, right? Maybe.

Your Black-Eyed Pea Questions Answered

If you are planning to celebrate the New Year in the Southeast, it is most likely that you will be offered black-eyed peas in some form, either just after midnight or on New Year's Day. From grand gala gourmet dinners to small casual gatherings with friends and family, these flavorful legumes are traditionally, according to Southern folklore, the first food to be eaten on New Year's Day for luck and prosperity throughout the year ahead.

Hi Sister Liberty ... i wondered the same thing years ago ...

https://destee.com/threads/black-eyed-peas-and-new-years-day.5330/

Thanks for adding more information regarding this.

Since it does appear to be a southern / enslaved African thing ... :look:

maybe it's 'cause the white folk let us eat all the black eyed peas we wanted on new years day

if we stayed alive from all the beatings and malnutrition the prior year

maybe it was a reward ... and the good luck that you make it alive to next years black eyed peas

iono ... i'm jes say'n ... :)

Love You!

:heart:

Here's an alternative for those tired of Black Eyed Peas ...


Gullah-Style Hoppin' John, a traditional New Year's dish from the American South, is served in the Sweet Home Cafe with sea island red peas instead of black eyed peas.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
