I was also so excited and relieved to finally find wide mouth jars after multiple online orders were cancelled and unsuccessfully searching many local stores! It's so much more fun for the children to actually get to keep the treats in the jar instead of getting them dumped into a ziplock to take home.
Legend states that Ulphe placed the frogs in the area around her hermitage (which was built in a swampy area) under interdict as a result of their loud croaking, which kept her awake at nights. Thus, in her iconography, she is depicted as a young nun seated in prayer on a rock with a frog in the pool near her.
A 19th century hagiographer noted that the frogs in the area around the oratory of Saint Ulphe were, indeed, very quiet. However, if these frogs were taken elsewhere, they became boisterous once again."
