Where are the swimming pigs? The pigs live on Big Major Cay, one of the over 365 islands in Exuma, a district of the Bahamas. Also known as Pig Beach (for obvious reasons), the island is about 82 miles southeast of Nassau, and about 50 miles northwest of George Town. It is entirely uninhabited by humans.

It will make a great affordable gift in the Holiday Season!

button-blank-200.jpgThe pig is a symbol of prosperity, fertility and lots of good luck. Swine farmers were known to always have food. Keeping pigs was a sure way of insuring your family’s well-being. As the old Irish saying goes; “The pig is the gentleman who pays the rent”.In Germany they say “Glücksschwein”, which translates to lucky pig. Pig decorations and illustrations on good luck and best wishes cards are common in Germany. This is especially true around New Year. Candy in shapes of pigs symbolizes wishes of prosperity and luck. Marzipan pigs are sold in the thousands every December in Northern Europe.
