Pam,

Eating pork as your first meal on New Year's Day will bring you good luck, according to the Pennsylvania Dutch. Here:

We always had pork and sauerkraut on New Year's Day. It was an acquired taste for me as a child, but I love it now. Plus, sauerkraut is good for you, if you're into that healthy stuff.
