Fake Plastic Pigs

A very important Christmas tradition in Venezuela is "aguinaldos". Workers of bakeries, parking lots, hot dog cars, dry cleaners, etc... buy a plastic piggy bank and decorate it in all sorts of ways to ask for money, their "aguinaldo" (a word that means both "Xmas song" and "gift"). Here are some of the "cochinitos" I bumped into this Xmas in Caracas :)

Is there a tradition like this where you live?
