The Florida Superstition That Will Give You Wealth, Luck, And Happiness In 2017

Are you superstitious? Do you avoid black cats, breaking mirrors, and walking under ladders?

There are so many things you’re not supposed to do, but the great thing about this Southern superstition is that you don’t have to avoid anything. In fact, all you have to do is eat some delicious food. My family has always followed this tradition, but I wasn’t sure if this was something everyone in Florida did. I’m sure you’re aware that Florida attracts people from all over the world, so it’s not exactly a typical Southern state.

Then, I noticed that Publix has put a few of these ingredients on sale and on display. Plus, it can’t hurt to have some good luck, right? Even if you’ve never tried it before, you should give this tasty (and lucky) New Year’s Day meal a chance:

Another explanation for using these particular ingredients is that these were the only ingredients left in the South during the Civil War, and thus this tradition followed necessity.

Do you usually make this New Year’s meal? What’s your favorite way to prepare these ingredients? Do you think it really works?
