Good Luck

On New Year's Day, a big pot of black-eyed peas should be prepared and cooked into the pot should be a brand new dime from the bank. The peas are served and whoever gets the dime in their serving will have wealth for the rest of the year. The peas keep getting served until the dime is found.
