Sean Wins the PIG!

So there's this little Norwegian tradition that my family keeps up with every year...
On Christmas Eve, we serve everyone a bowl of rice cream. (It's just what it sounds like... it's actually rice and heavy whipping cream... usually with some strawberries on top.) One of the bowls of rice cream has a nut hidden somewhere, and whoever finds the nut wins!
What do they win... well, a marzipan pig, of course! (Or some other chocolate prize for those, like Dad, who do not like marzipan!)
This year was Sean's second time sampling this fun family favorite... and this year, he won! Funny thing is, "they" say that whoever finds the nut not only wins the pig... he or she will also marry within the year!
