Prune People

Several different stories are being associated with the beginnings of Prune People.
Some believe these cute, dried fruit, Christmas figurines are quintessentially as German as Christkindlesmarkt is, others, favor idea of Prune People arriving from the East, most likely Croatia.
Eastern, or Western, this ingenious creation is guaranteed to bring cheers, and smiles to onlookers' hearts, and faces.
Settled well in Germany, and neighboring German speaking countries, Prune People graced Christmas Markets for hundreds of years, there.
As common wisdom puts it: homes with Prune People will never be without gold, and happiness! Why not consider adding a few Prune People to your own homestead?
They are easy to make. All you need is dried fruit (raisins, and sultanas for legs, and arms, dried figs, and apricots for the body, Walnuts, or Pecans for faces), a little wire to thread the pieces together, a little glue for the final touch, a little ingenuity, and presto!
Increase positive forces around your home, and family in the coming months; - make Prune People, and have great time creating.
