Railroad Street, Spring Mills

New Year's pork and sauerkraut is a staple in many Pennsylvanian homes, and can be tied to German immigrants in the 16th Century.

"Eating pork and sauerkraut on the New Year’s first day is a superstitious tradition tied to bringing good fortune. In William Woys Weaver’s book, Sauerkraut Yankee, the pig uses its snout to root forward toward the future unlike chickens who scratch the earth backward. The pork and sauerkraut meal was believed to bring you, going forward, good luck and fortune in the new year.

It’s possible the tradition might have been helped by the fact that pork also was an important source of protein in early America as wild pigs were plentiful and had first been brought to the New World by explorers of the 1500s."
