As we head into the New Year this weekend there are some things that you can do on New Year's Eve to help bring you some good luck your way in 2023.

New York Eve superstitions have always been a part of my life. Growing up my mom used to always do a couple of things on New Year's Eve to make sure we would have luck the following year.

For an abundance of money, my mom used to always give a quarter with the new year on it and we were supposed to keep it all year long. As long as we had that quarter we would have money coming into our lives. I know that growing up, if I ever needed a couple of bucks, somehow, someway I had that money.

Another thing my mom did was make use that we would have anchovies to eat at midnight. As you will see below in my list of the 10 ways you can bring good luck in 2022, Fish is known to be a great good luck charm. Fish only swim in one direction, forward, so if you eat fish on New Year's Eve you should be always moving forward in the new year.

The final thing that my mom used to make sure we had on New Year's Eve was friends and family around us. She would always tell us that the people you are with on New Year's Eve and what you do on New Year's Day are the people and things you will be doing for the rest of the year

It is best to avoid doing things you don't like on New Year's Day. We never do laundry or chores, because we don't want to have the mojo all year long.

So if 2022 wasn't the best year for you and you are looking to turn it around in 2023, here are 10 things you can do to hedge your bet for Good Luck.
