Lucky Pigs / Glücksschweinchen

During the last few days, you could see them everywhere in the bakeries and confectionery departments of supermarkets: The lucky pigs made of marzipan, usually together with a four-leaf clover. Another lucky charm for the new year are small chimney sweepers made of paper mache, which I do not really like. I have no idea why they consider the chimney sweep as a lucky charm. In any case, I prefer the marzipan pig. These little pigs just look so cute. As to whether they bring luck, I cannot say. But they always tasted very good to me.

Während der letzten Tage sah man sie überall in den Bäckereien und Süßwarenabteilungen der Supermärkte: Die Glücksschweinchen aus Marzipan, meistens zusammen mit einem vierblättrigen Kleeblatt. Ein weiterer Glücksbringer für das neue Jahr sind kleine Schornsteinfeger aus Pappmaché, die ich allerdings nicht sehr mag. Ich habe keine Ahnung, warum man den Schornsteinfeger als Glücksbringer betrachtet. Ich jedenfalls gebe dem Marzipanschwein den Vorzug. Die kleinen Tiere sehen einfach netter aus. Ob sie Glück bringen, kann ich jetzt nicht sagen. Geschmeckt haben sie mir allerdings immer.


Since 2014 I have been writing and illustrating books for children, mainly for preschool age. In the meantime I have published three animal stories. More picture books are in progress. If you are interested in readings (Kindergarten), my books or any illustration work, please feel free to contact me. I live with my family and a funny poodle in the beautiful Weserbergland, Germany.
