New Year's Day poll

vakkotaur claims that it's traditional in the frozen North to eat pickled herring on New Year's Day. Being from the south, I always eat black-eyed peas for good luck; Paul claims that that stinks up the whole house, and that I do that so nothing worse can happen the rest of the year. To me, eating pickled fish falls into that category.

What do you think?
