Food to Serve on New Year's Eve

A lot of people are going over the food that they will serve for New Year's Eve. Not that they really worry about what they would like to eat but they want to get every food they they could have that will bring them good luck for the rest of the year. So here are some of the things that I heard people are buying in the hope that they will bring them good vibes for 2011.

Food to Serve on New Year's Eve

1. ROUND FRUITS - There is a long list of fruits that can be bought to bring more money. Some of them are apples, oranges, grapes and pears. Round fruits are chosen because they resemble the shape of money.
2. STICKY FOOD - People choose sticky foods because they are believed to strengthen the bond between families. Some foods chosen are paella or arroz, kakanins like sapin-sapin and biko.
3. NOODLES - People serve noodles during New Year's Eve because they symbolize long life. There is a wide variety of noodles to choose from. But those sold in Chinese stores are the most popoular.

If there are foods that are said to bring in good luck, there are also those that are said to be full of bad luck. One of the is chicken because in the Philippines there is a saying that says chicken are "isang kahig, isang tuka". This means that you are always left wanting because you only get provisions enough for one meal.

At the end of the day, luck is based on how good you live your life. It is best to leave everything in the hands of God than base it on fruits or noodles.

Happy New Year everyone.
