This "Peppermint Pig"™ as aptly it was named, was cast of hard candy, similar in fashion to candy cane and festive pink in color. And while the pig is honored in Victorian holiday tradition as a symbol of good health, happiness and prosperity, these special "Peppermint Pigs", unique to Saratoga Springs, came to represent much more. They proudly stood for an old-fashioned Yuletide itself-a wonderful time when red-cheeked children laughed and rode old wooden sleds over fresh snow, when church bells pealed and warm memories were shared by a gathering of family and friends. After the holiday dinner, the Pigs were broken and shared by all in the hopes of good fortune for the coming year.
The combination pack includes Noel (the medium sized pig), nickel plated hammer, red velvet pouch, “Legend” storycard and instructions on how to break your Peppermint Pig™. It is of course, gift boxed.
The combination pack is truly the ideal gift for others; or the perfect way to open your family’s heart to this wonderful tradition of fun and sharing.
