Like every New Year's Day.
Well, the tale goes that in late 1864 when Sherman marched his troops through Georgia, the soldiers were ordered to strip the land of all food, crops and livestock. It is said that they were told to destroy everything they couldn't eat or carry away. So, the Southerners were left with nothing to eat except black-eyed peas. And they fared well on those black-eyed peas. Now, they are thought to bring good luck and and health and hope of better days.
The collards are said to bring green stuff, moo-la, money, dinero, wealth.
The cornbread is yummy and goes well with everything on the plate. :)
