Christmas Pigs

Brand: Lyx

Cost: 39 KR

Found at: Coop


In the spirit of Christmas, today’s post will be set to the tune of “Away in a Manger.”


I found them while shopping

Couldn’t understand why –

Five marzipan piglets

All lined up to buy.


I asked my Swede boyfriend

The reason and rhyme.

He said, “because Swedes

eat pork at Christmas time.”


I thought he was kidding

Or just didn’t know

Of Nordic traditions

From decades ago.


I ventured to Google

And to his delight:

Upon further inspection

I found he was right.
