In Spain and other Spanish speaking countries, grapes are eaten with each bell strike at midnight to bring a year of prosperity. In Japan, soba noodles symbolize a bridge from the old year to the new. Leafy greens are eaten all over the world to represent folded money and a rise in the economic future, and cornbread, beans, peas, and lentils are eaten to symbolize growing wealth in the new year. All these foods are good for your health regardless, so here are some traditional (and not-so-traditional) New Year fare to ring in the new year.
