Cabbage For Good Luck For New Years?

Here in Mississippi we eat black-eyed peas on New Year's Day to bring good luck and prosperity in the coming year. Some people eat green cabbage also, but I don't since I dislike the taste and smell of cooked cabbage. This ornamental cabbage is much too pretty to harvest for eating anyway. It is interesting how cold weather makes the colors of ornamental cabbage brighter and deeper.

Lovely picture of the cabbage. We do not know the custom of eating something special as a lucky charm for New Year. But we drink a glass of Champagne ;-) !!
Have a healthy and wonderful 2008.
