Lucky pig: Good luck charm, good luck symbol, amulet

The Lucky Pig

This common domesticated animal has long been a symbol of luck in many cultures. In Germany, the phrase “Mann

hat Schwein” is commonly used when someone comes upon luck, literally meaning “You have pig”.

The Greek earth fertility goddess, Demeter, kept a sacred pig which became a symbol of fertility. Native American

Indians recognize the pig as a symbol of the abundance of daily life and believe that it teaches us to celebrate

life and share it with others. Manannan, the Celtic God of the Sea, kept a magical herd of pigs (which renewed

itself as soon as any were eaten). Manannan hosted a great annual “Feast of Age”, where the gods acquired

the ever-renewing qualities of the pigs, and thus never grew old.
