It was reported that children had been witnessing several golden pigs running around in Central Europe on Christmas Eve. The tradition puts forward that if children can fast until dinner on Christmas Eve, they might be lucky enough to see these mysterious pigs.
It was also the only time where people attended church. It was believed that if they went to church for Christmas, it would make up for all the times they didn’t attend church throughout the year. Maybe the priests there need to walk around with umbrellas too.
Czech Republic and Slovakia, Central Europe
These golden pigs can be found in Czech Republic if you’re fast long enough. Psychologists there are still debating if it’s the result of hallucination for not eating for prolonged periods of time.
Since psychologists entered Czech Republic and Slovakia on Christmas Eve, they found another odd happening; girls threw their shoes over their shoulders repeatedly. Apparently, it was a way of finding out if they would get married soon. This worried psychologists and declared both countries are in a state of crisis.
I couldn’t work out how exactly the shoes told their future of marriage, I was too busy trying to land my eyes on one of those golden pigs!
