My mother always made sure all the Christmas decorations were put up before New Year's Eve. She always said it was bad luck to leave them up for the New Year.
She didn't believe in jinxes, any more than I do, but to this day I still make sure every piece of decoration is put up before New Year's Eve. I think it's just a fun tradition, that always reminds me of my mother, and, besides, it keeps me from procrastinating LOL!
So, do you still have your tree up? Do you make sure you eat black eyed peas and greens on New Year's Day?
Do YOU have any New Year's superstitions?
