Celebrate New Year's Day with traditional Southern dishes that promise to bring luck, wealth and good health.
New Year's Day in the South means two things: food and football. But it's the former that takes center stage on this day. The South has a rich history filled with food and, to many, it's the tradition behind why we eat certain dishes on New Year's that keeps us eating them year after year.
People might think Mardi Gras is the time to visit New Orleans, but the city is actually much more charming, and less crowded, during the holidays. Lights twinkle down Canal Street, wreaths decorate the streetcars and snow even falls outside Harrah's Casino. Of course music is always a highlight in New Orleans, but hearing some of the country's best musicians sing carols in St. Louis Cathedral is an unforgettable experience.
