Do you believe that eating certain foods on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day will give you good luck? Lucky foods exist in many cultures: grapes in Spain, hoppin' John in the Southern U.S., and soba noodles in Japan.
On the other hand, some people avoid eating food with wings because it could fly away, taking your luck with it. Revelers who are putting on the ritz should steer clear of lobsters: they move backwards and could change your luck. You might do better with oysters.
Do you eat a lucky food to welcome the new year?
