I came across this article on the bon appetit blog about 10 foods that will bring you luck in the new year. There are some really interesting customs related to food and the new year. The only one I had heard of before is eating black-eyed peas (which I do every year!), but I like the idea of the 12 grapes at midnight (which is Portuguese, like my husband) and a ring shaped food (I'll never turn down a donut).
I tend not to be a big resolution maker. But this past month I have fallen out of my exercise habit, so I'll use January 1st as an excuse to get back into my daily routine. I also like to set a reading goal for the year on my goodreads page. In 2011 my goal is 25 books (not including countless comics), and I'd like to try and up that a little for 2012.
my friend Maxine sent me this video yesterday of Zooey Deschanel and
Joseph Gordon-Levitt singing a song about New Year's Eve, it's so cute!
