Germans have told me of some sort of tradition on the New Year of passing out piggy banks, sparschwein, for prosperity and good luck. They do something with marzipan piggy candies too. Then in the south you have to have ham and black eyed peas on New Years to start the year out right. I had a nice soy ham and cheese sandwich for lunch, and of course have made dozens of piggies recently, so this must be quite a prosperous year ahead.
