• Watching the Time Square Ball Drop in New York City. It began back in 1907 with a ball that weighed 700 pounds. Today it is 11,875 pounds and mostly crystal.
• Making resolutions has become part and parcel of New Year’s. The most common ones are about staying fit or reducing use of the phone. They often only last a few weeks.
• Sharing a kiss on New Year’s Eve at midnight was believed to ward off evil spirits and prevent loneliness in the next year.
• Black-eyed peas are often the centerpiece of New Year’s meals. Hoppin’ John is a famous southern dish believed to attract good luck if eaten on Jan. 1. The peas represent coins and eating them brings luck and prosperity in our lives in the coming days.
• Singing or listening to Auld Lang Syne at midnight is popular. It was written 200 years ago, but came to prominence for this holiday when singer Guy Lombardo performed it in 1929.
