In the Southern United States, eating black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day is thought to bring prosperity in the new year. The peas, since they swell when cooked, symbolize prosperity. Several legends exist as to the origin of this custom. The first is associated with the Civil War, during which the Union pillaged the Confederate’s food supplies. Stories say peas and salted pork were left untouched, because of the belief that they were unfit for human consumption. Southerners considered themselves lucky to be left with some supplies to help them survive the winter, and black-eyed peas evolved into a representation of good luck.
