    About another 12.5 hours here until 2008 arrives!

    But, of course, since it is both month end & year end it means that I'll be here at the office working all day & night so there'll be no parties for me tonight. Perhaps Tuesday I'll visit some family for the traditional dinner of pork & sauerkraut.

    At least for me it comes from living in this area. A lot of the Pennsylvania Dutch communities come from German ancestry and along the years pork & sauerkraut (and mashed potatos, with a slab of butter on top... can't forget them!) became a New Years Day tradition meant to bring good luck for the new year.

    A lot of my favorite foods are actually related to the PA Dutch communities. Pennsylvania Dutch Red Birch Beer... sweet Lebanon bologna... chicken dumplings... funnel cake... fastnachts... corn fritters... man, I'm getting hungry. :D
