The coloring page this week is another hedgehog. But not the ordinary kind. It’s an Arkan Sonney, (literally lucky urchin or plentiful pig), which is the Gaelic for hedgehog. In Gaelic folklore, it is a type of Fae which looks like a pig with long hairs. They are said to bring good luck to whoever can catch them. For this reason, they’re also called “lucky piggies”. They are very shy and will flee from people.

It was said by the wise ones that if you catch a lucky piggy, you will always find a silver piece in your pocket.
