Bizarre New Year’s Eve Traditions

pwe_ny_eve_walleye_2k_col_12-31_t640–My mother used to eat pickled herring on New Year’s Eve, probably figuring that if she did so, nothing worse would happen to her in the upcoming year.

Some cities and towns drop objects in their town square to mark the arrival of the New Year.  In Port Clinton, Ohio, they drop a 20-ft.-long 600-lb. walleye fish.  In Bethlehem, Pennsylvania they drop a 25-lb. fiberglass version of a marshmellow “Peep.”
