Traditional new years day meal and what it means.

Maybe its just a southern thing, and maybe for others each item means something else, but here's what they mean to me.
  1. Collard greens
    We eat these for money in the new year.
  2. Pork loin
    We eat this for health in the new year.
  3. Black eye peas
    We eat these for luck in the new year.
