Irish Man Carves Child of Prague From Spud For A Dry Wedding

Share this article


We know potatoes are versatile but this is genius.

It a well-known Irish tradition at this stage to put The Child Of Prague statue in the garden the night before a wedding.

The superstition confides that if you do place said statue outside then you will be guaranteed good weather on the big day.

Sacrilicious

But, what do you do if you're abroad and don't have the said religious relic to hand.

You make your own.

Looked like rain for a wedding in France so one of the lads carved a Child of Prague from a spud. Worked a treat! from r/ireland
