Black Eyed Peas and Humilty

Be sure to get your black eyed peas for New Years. I was taught they bring good luck, add some greens to ensure money flows your way.

When I did some research about its origin I found many stories, including civil war stuff, Rosh Hashana and ancient Egypt. I liked this one....

During the time of the Pharaohs, it was believed that eating a meager food like black-eyed peas showed humility before the gods, and you would be blessed, according to Wikipedia, the Babylonian Talmud, which dates to 339 CE.
