An every day snack to most, the pistachio actually has a deeper significance dating back thousands of years. In China, the pistachio is known as the "happy nut" because it looks like its smiling. Often given as a gift during the Chinese New Year, pistachios are a symbol of health, happiness and good fortune. Similarly in India, pistachios are gifted as a symbol of love and good wishes, and in Brazil, sharing pistachios can be considered good luck and seen as a way of showing endearment. Our favorite tradition though, is that of Korea, where the sounds made by the cracking of pistachios is thought to drive evil spirits away in celebration of the lunar year (or Daeboreum).
