Pig Alert! Christmas Decorations

Pigs at Christmas! They're not just for... well, um... dinner any more:@) I've shared this German Christmas saying before: wir haben Schwein, which means "we have good luck", and pigs are the symbol of good luck and abundance in many cultures. So, how are folks making pigs a part of their holiday festivities? Let's see:

A great vintage Candy Mold turned into an ornament HERE.

Pig Lights from Bronner's HERE. I think these would be great for the patio of a Grill Master:@)

A fun, silly Tree Topper:@) I missed the link back...

Pike Place Market in Seattle has Pigs Pulling Santa's Sleigh on the roof!

Had to add this Ugly Christmas Sweater-too funny!

My personal favorite, the Table Runner my sons gave me a few years ago.
And the silly song I made up for it... Sung to the tune of Jingle Bells:
Squealing Thru The Snow
Squealing thru the snow,
One silly elf on a pig,
O'er the fields we go,
Laughing at this gig!
Bells on curly tail ring,
Spirits make things bright,
What fun it is to laugh and sing,
A pig riding song tonight!
~~~~oh~~~~
Jingle [snort] bells, Jingle [snort] bells,
Jingle all the way,
Oh what fun it is to ride,
One holiday pig this day!
Everybody join in...

And of course there are many different ornaments to choose from.
Here's wishing you a joyous festive season...
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone,
and enjoy your Christmas decorating and planning:@)
