On Rosh Hashanah my family has the minhag of when they get up to the scallion (type of onion) part of the special Rosh Hashanah meal, they bite the scallion in the middle making it into two pieces and throwing the two pieces behind their back on the floor. Does anybody perform this minhag, or know where this minhag originated from?

Shalom Shmuel:

We have a "Seder" type celebration for the two nights of Rosh Hashanah. We have 10 different kinds of foods, including Apple and Honey. We say the blessing over each food and we eat them. The "seder” takes about 10 minutes. For example we have Pomegranate symbolize the Jewish people be populated like the seeds. We have beans, symbolizing the Jews become smart.

Some Ashkenazim have a similar Minhag it is in the Art Scroll Sedoor

It is lots of fun
