As you prepare to bring in the new year in NOrth Carolina by having a good luck new years meal, different NC cities have different ways to bring in the year.

In Morehead City a crap pot is dropped, Fayetteville a box of dogwood (cant figure this out since it blooms around Easter.

In Cherryville the locals visit each other and fire muskets.
In Rural Hill (huntersville take part in the annual scottish tradition of taking the correct first step by walking or running at it annual tradition called First Footin.

Visit Oriental NC to bang pots bringing in the year to ward off dragons.
Or travel to other end of the state and watch Opossum drop.
Still feeling coastal visit Kure Beach to watch a beach ball drop.
If you feel like bigger celebrations in the metros. In Raliegh known as city of trees watch an acorn drop or visit Charlotte to watch a crown rise.

Make sure to prepare or visit a restaurant that serves traditional New Years meal that includes black eye peas, cornbread and collard greens with pork .

I think everyone should embrace recycling and put it out with their weekly trash...not many people recycle in NC.

Im surprise a town in NC isnt lowering a crap pot. I know what you mean, caffeine is my remedy.

I saw on the news the person that hosts the Opossum drop was unable to get permit the town enacted probably a rule the state made last year of using live animals. So instead he going to drop road kill

I like it far as it unique but maybe the town should do what Morehead city did and use a fake one.

When I first heard of the Opossum drop a couple years ago, my mind thought they literally drop Oppossum til I saw a video of it lowered in a box.

I know the Possum Drop has been under review lately. Poor possums. They get no respect.

Here's the link to the Pickle Drop. It's at the corner of Cucumber and Vine, lol.
Welcome to Mt. Olive Pickles - That's Picklicious!

Our tradition is to be the first on the lift at Sugar Mtn. While everybody else is sleeping off their New Year's Eve hangover, we're getting the best snow of the day.... and no crowds (shhhhh!!!!)

To quote my hubby:

Thanksgiving Day tradition - turkey sandwich in the base lodge at Sugar Mtn.

Christmas Day tradition - turkey sandwich in the base lodge at Sugar Mtn.

New Year's Day tradition - turkey sandwich in the base lodge at Sugar Mtn.

Makes it easy on me in the kitchen.
