12 Midnight Tomorrow....Throw Money In The Door BEFORE You Walk In!

I read this on the Playground here and I can't find the link now but it said that to bring good money luck into your house for the New Year you need to throw money into your house at 12 Midnight or afterward BEFORE you walk in the door! Some people leave the money outside and then walk out the door at midnight and throw the money in and walk back inside.

I plan I putting a small bag of money in DF car and when we get back from the club we will throw the money in the door first before we go in!

What the heck, it can't hurt, right?!

Along the same lines, do you have a superstitious meal for New Years Day?
Here in the south, we do: meat (sausage, pork, corned beef, etc - a rich, fatty meat) with cabbage (can be saurkraut, kimchi, whatever -cabbage based) and black eye peas.

Oooh, we will be doing this! I read that thread also, and gave it half thought, but why not.

I think I'll put some post-it notes also for good health and spiritual blessings.

I actually thought to include Black-Eyed peas on the New Year's Eve menu this year. I'd never heard of that southern tradition until I got married and my in-laws threw a party.

I've never heard of throwing money in the door, but it can't hurt. My DH lost his full-time job 2 1/2 years ago and now works 5 part-time jobs to get by. It's not fun, and I hope it gets better this year.

Yes - Black-eyed peas! Those were the other things I heard about, back when I lived in Pittsburgh, PA - blackeyed peas and sauerkraut for good times on NYD!

I can't for the life of me remember, but a friend once told me that there was a tradition of wearing all new clothing on New Year's Day, but I can't remember what culture that belongs to?

I will definitely try throwing the money! I could sure use some luck there.

OH, I forgot about this one!! Grandma always said the same thing! We are Italian and we always ate black eyed peas and herring on NYE!! Can't stomach either one of them so that tradition died when Grandma did, but I still do the No Fowl on NYD and now I got the new money tradition!!

YES!! As long as the money is the first thing that enters the house on NYE/NYD before anything or anyone else does, that is the idea!!

From what I read you can do just that; leave the money outside, go outside and get it, throw it in the house and then go in yourself, at midnight or afterward from midnight!

I did it year before last and had money luck all year. Last year, my dad found my money outside and brought it in before we all went out at midnight for fireworks. I haven't won a single cent on all the football pools this year. My daughter and I were talking earlier tonight and said we have to hide it til we are ready to come back in. I want my luck back!!!!!

We do ham, cabbage and black eye peas. We also have sauerkraut since that is what my dad grew up eating instead of cabbage in PA. I have always insisted the kids take just a dab of each growing up. Now they love all the different foods!

My uncle one year had bags of twelve grapes each for everyone to eat at midnight. I don't remember what it was for but probably luck in the new year.

Okay, I'm game to try it, but here's my situation. DH is working and will be out until 3 a.m. or so, DD is 7 and will most likely fall asleep before midnight. I will also most likely be asleep before midnight.

Does everyone need to be out of the house and then come in after the money, or can we be in bed and let DH toss the coins in when he gets home?

I could sure use some good financial luck this year!

I want to know this, too. I'll be coming home at 2 AM but my 17 and 19 year old will be sleeping. As long as I still get the good financial luck

Here's the gist of it from a link in the above link:
Quote:
And Once Again - the New Year Money Ritual
I posted this last year and can't believe a year has gone by already.

Anyway, here is what you do.

On December 31st, place an amount of money (any amount - it can be change) in a container outside of your place of dwelling (house, condo, apartment)

As soon as possible after the new year has begun, before you do anything, open your door and bring the money inside. If you are expecting visitors after the new year has begun, have them bring the container inside with them.

The important thing to remember is that this container with money must be the first thing to enter your home in the new year!

The belief behind this ritual is that if you do this correctly, then money will always be coming into your home in one way or another during the coming year.


We had a lot of fun posting about this last year. I would like to share with you some of the money that came in for me....

I did get laid off from my job in February, however, I got a good amount of severence pay (worth 3 months pay) mailed to me. (helped me out a great deal)

I got a roommate - while the first one was not so good, the current one is wonderful and now I have a consistent flow of money coming in every month to help me out.

Got a decent tax return this year when I thought it wouldn't be so good due to my having to take out $$ from my 401K earlier in the past year.


So those are my experiences.

Let me stress that this ritual is purely meant for fun. The above could have happened to me no matter what I did on January 1st. I just personally believe that trusting in a litle magic sometimes can't hurt right?

Anyway, have fun with it folks. And if anyone did this last year, feel free to share your experiences.
