Happy New Year!
I am sending positive vibes out to everyone for prosperity, excellent health, and eternal joy in 2022. I’m sure people across the country began celebrating the coming of the new year in worship, attending parties, making new year resolutions, and enjoying special New Year’s foods. This year I brought in the new year in bed just being grateful for the health and well-being of my family, friends, and loved ones.
Our family has many new year’s traditions that include who should be the first to enter the home and what foods should be prepared. Some African American families around the country will sit down to eat some variation of green vegetables and black-eyed peas that continue a tradition meant to usher in opportunity in the year ahead. The choice of greens, usually cooked with pork for flavor, comes from the perception among African Americans that folded collard greens look like paper money, according to Adrian Miller, an author, and food scholar. Eating greens on New Year’s Day is believed to attract prosperity and the peas are supposed to attract good luck, health, and abundance. Gemstones can also be used to attract prosperity, good health, and abundance. Include these gemstones to wear as jewelry or in your home décor.
