FOR GOOD LUCK:
1. wear yellow underwear on NYE
2. eat a leaf of cabbage
3. eat a spoon of black-eye peas
4. eat 12 grapes and make a wish for each one
5. mop part of your house, and then dump the bucket of water out the door (this cleanses your house of bad luck)
1. trade a dollar bill with someone and keep it in your wallet all year
2. leave a cabbage head under your bed right before midnight, and remove afterwards
3. eat a mandarin and save the seeds in your wallet
1. wear red underwear (instead of the yellow, or with the yellow... up to you really)
1. walk around the block with a piece of luggage/backpack with an item of yours inside. Through the years we have decided that if you run, you will travel by plane. If you walk you will travel by bus
I can verify that this works. Those of you that know me, know I am constantly traveling... so try it!
Now it's quite a task to do all of these right at midnight. I suggest you start out like 15 mins ahead of time. It makes for lots of fun.
Happy Happy New Year!!!
