在我們國家,元旦的第一餐,我們都會吃鯡魚,因爲這種魚總是成群結隊地游弋,象征着家族的富裕繁榮。

另外,美國人偏愛魚的另一緣由是,這種動物在水中總是向前方努力,吃了它在新的一年中定會出人頭地。

另外必吃的還有眉豆、甘藍菜、豬肉、玉米麵包。據美國民間說法,眉豆的形狀像銅板,扇形甘藍菜的深綠顏色跟美國鈔票的顏色一樣,這象徵了財運;新年吃豬肉則是因為豬是用兩條前腿不斷向前挖掘,象徵了人們在新的一年裡會不斷進步發展,肥腴的豬肉會給新的一年帶來財富和繁榮,玉米麵包的顏色則跟黃金相似。

美國人還避免在新年吃龍蝦,因為龍蝦是倒著走的,人們不希望新的一年裡凡事落後不前。

美國南方人烹調眉豆的方法很簡單。通常是把煙熏過的豬肉或骨頭加入洋蔥熬成高湯,然後放入眉豆慢火熬煮,調味料只有鹽和胡椒,豆子軟化時吸足了醺味香濃的高湯精華,原本是平民食物的眉豆就升華到讓人感到無比滿足的「靈魂食物」了。

眉豆、玉米是美國南方普遍種植的作物,加上南方冬令盛產扇形甘藍等綠葉蔬菜,這些帶有吉祥象徵的食物現在已經成為普及全美的傳統新年食物。
