ANDREA SEABROOK, Host:
New Year's Day isn't just bowl games and resolutions. Nearly every culture has special foods to eat on January 1st to ensure good luck and prosperity in the new year. WEEKEND EDITION commentator Bonny Wolf decided to try some for the New Year's Day brunch she's putting together for a newly married couple.
BONNY WOLF: The newlyweds are a happy, well-suited couple. They probably don't need all this extra insurance, but why take chances? Keep your fingers crossed.
