Pork and saurkraut. My Grandmother and Mother always added egg drop dumplings, so do I. For the last past 22 years we have celebrated my youngest son's birthday, so we have birthday cake.
Things we do:
I give out a silver coin(usually a dime or a quarter) to everyone there. This is to make sure they never go broke for the coming year.
I also place a sliver coin on the window sills(inside) of every window. Same reason as above.
Hammer pots with a spoon and yell.
Ring a cow bell.
