Every culture seems to have their custom 'lucky foods' to consume on New Years eve/day. Epicurious has a nice selection of recipes that feature some of the biggies like greens and lentils, but did you know that there are actually UN-lucky foods that you might want to avoid on the holiday? Lobster is one as they move backward, which may lead to setbacks in the new year. Chicken too
