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.
