As the new year begins many people have been gathering around the table to usher in 2010 with long standing traditions centered around the holiday meal.

Some of those traditional items may surprise you. David Worst, the Manager of Foodland on Plum Street says frozen pizza has become a new holiday favorite, and the sales are giving him a business boom.

More traditional foods include: donuts in the Netherlands, fish in China, and in numerous countries, sauerkraut, cabbage and pork.

Deborah Dowler a holiday grocery shopper says her family always makes pork and cabbage on New Year's Day. A tradition that dates at least as far back as her grandmother.

And with tradition as important as a family meal 2010 will be both nostalgic and satisfying.
