Well it's a brand new year, and I think we are all going to need some good luck. My family always eats black eyed peas on new years day for good luck. My wife never heard of this passage into the new year until she met my family, but when I went to the grocery store to buy the black eyed peas only two cans were left. So, I know many others eat these peas for their luck. I would actually be interested how many others rely on the power of the black eyed pea.
