“To symbolize good luck for the coming year, people in Italy, Germany and Brazil eat lentils, while in the United States, many begin the year with a modest meal of black-eyed peas in hopes that they’ll eat well in the future.” (Education.com)

We did a craft I found online with the black-eyed peas and then had many left so the kids made art out of them
