In Latin America, the pig is especially significant as a symbol of abundance and happiness.
These good luck charms called Chanchitos are handmade in a small town near Santiago, Chile where locals give them to friends and loved ones as tokens of good fortune. As the story goes, “a three-legged pig who is able to stand must be lucky.”
Each pig comes with an enclosure card telling the story of the good luck it will bring. Buy several for yourself and your friends—there's no such thing as too much good fortune!
