On Friday, I will do what I do every year on New Year’s Day. I will eat a large serving of black-eyed peas while I watch football games on TV.
I am a southerner and superstitious. Accordingly, I firmly believe that beginning a New Year with a bowl of black-eyed peas can bring good luck. And do we need a large serving of luck in 2021!
During these silent nights, I will be dreaming of Christmases yet to come after the advent of vaccines and the epiphany that the pandemic has passed.
