Tres Chanchitos...

In the small village of Pomaire, Chile, it is believed that "chanchitos", little pigs, bring good luck. Three legged chanchitos are especially fortunate and are traditional given to friends as a token of goodwill and love. Made from terracotta, these are really cute so if you know someone down on their luck, go on, give them a little 'chanchito', it might bring you some lucky karma in return.
