Pigs with Masks – level 2

11-12-2020 07:00

Czech people believe that if they do not drink or eat before the Christmas Eve dinner, they will see a golden pig.

A Czech company makes Christmas ornaments. It is a tradition to make ornaments that look like golden pigs. Every year, ornament makers make golden piglet decorations in white, gold, and pink. They usually add flowers and bows, but this year, the pigs look different.

According to the owner of the company, ornament makers wanted to react to the current situation. Therefore, they added face masks. Golden piglets in masks immediately became a big hit, and ornament makers are now making nothing else apart from the piglets.

Difficult words: ornament maker (a person whose job is to make Christmas ornaments that people hang on a Christmas tree), bow (when you tie shoelaces or a ribbon together), piglet (a baby pig).
