Smash a Peppermint Pig! Start a New Holiday Tradition That Dates Back to Victorian Times

This New Year's tradition started in Saratoga Springs, New York, back in the early 1880s when a candymaker decided to make a peppermint candy pig. The pig symbolizes good health, happiness, and prosperity—all the things everyone wants in the New Year! The tradition is that the candy pig is placed in the velvet bag and smashed with the hammer, and then the pieces of the candy are enjoyed by everyone gathered around the table. Everyone who enjoys a piece of the peppermint candy will also enjoy good health, happiness, and prosperity in the year ahead. Makes a wonderful stocking stuffer or hostess gift!
