flying pig

I hope it's a lucky pig. In Germany it's a custom to give lucky charms as a present on New Year's Day. A lucky pig is such a lucky charm and is meant to bring good luck to the new owner in the new year. The meaning goes back to the Germanic tribes where the boar was standing for fertility, prosperity and wealth. Today it mainly means luck for everything.

I wish everyone a happy and healthy new year and of course a lucky one too!
