Have you heard of the Peppermint Pig? (You can read all about them here.) Yeah neither had I. My aunt found one and brought it over for Christmas dinner. After dinner we had at it. You take the pig and put it in this red bag. The head of the household talks about something fortunate that happened the past year and you give the pig a whack. Then it goes around the table. It's good fun. Then you eat it (and it tastes pretty good)
It was a good way to reflect on the past year and look ahead to the coming year.
Before he was placed in his little red sack.
After he went around the table. Sorry piggy.
Dominic and the pig.
