Fröhliche Weihnachten, äh Schweihnachten an euch Alle.
an unsused character from my new book “Die Eichhörnchenpiraten”. Will be published in october by Thienemann.
This was a work for Arte done in 2011. Karambolage is a TV show that is shown in Germany and in France and always explains customs of the other country. In this case it is about the Glücksschwein. In Germany for example small figurines of pigs are used as lucky charms. So if you want to wish somebody good luck you might give him a small pig made of marzipan as a present. The film explains the origins of this custom.
