Isn't it funny the traditions for the New Year's day meal? I've never heard of sauerkraut being lucky, but I was raised that you must eat your greens on that day. :o)

My mother, who has been gone now for about 13 years, always made pork and sauerkraut for New Years. She always said, "out with the old, in with the new". Actually, that is kind of gross, isn't it?
