People Chowing Down on Ham, Peas & Greens for Good Luck

People are piling on the black eyed peas, collard greens and ham this New Year's Day in hopes of bringing in some good luck.

It's an annual southern tradition. Depending on who you asks, each of the foods symbolizes something different. The greens represent prosperity. The ham represents good luck. And the peas stand for change.
