Well, what do you know? It turned into another year! As I was poking around looking at vintage images, I found a bunch of New Year pig images:
Pigs. For New Year. Hmmm.
It appears to have been an all-Europe phenomenon, imported to the US.
I am surprised I never noticed this ‘gluckschwein’ (lucky pig) imagery in conjunction with the New Year before.
By luck, I happen to have a pig book coming out early in this New Year- in a mere 17 days! This is what my little pig guy looks like.
With maybe just a little more luck, it will be discovered and enjoyed by actual kids.
Happy New Year everyone! Oink!
