圣诞节快乐!

Lucky pig Christmas ornaments

Yep, lucky snow pig Christmas tree ornaments. I saw these in Cold Sotrage and loved them so much that I bought them, and here they are sitting on my desk.

While neither the Middle East (birthplace of Christianity) nor Singapore (where I bought these) are renowned for their white Christmases, Christmas arrived in Asia via Europe and the US, where – thanks to Charles Dickens and the greetings card manufacturers – snow and Christmas are inseperably linked.

Equally, in China pigs are considered lucky, and there exists a huge market in pig-themed charms and trinkets.
