Eating pork on New Year’s Day is a tradition in many parts of Germany, as well as in other parts of Europe. The origins of this tradition are not entirely clear, but it is believed to date back to ancient times. In the past, pork was often seen as a symbol of wealth and prosperity, and it was also a readily available food source for many people. Eating pork on New Year’s Day was therefore seen as a way to bring good luck and prosperity for the coming year.
In many parts of Germany, it is also traditional to serve roast pork with sauerkraut, which is thought to bring good luck. Some people also believe that the long cooking time required to roast a pork roast helps to symbolize the passage of time and the start of a new year.
Overall, the tradition of eating pork on New Year’s Day in Germany is a long-standing one that is steeped in history and cultural significance.
