The Peppermint Pig Tale:
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.
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
