Tomorrow is February 5 and while that may seem like an ordinary day for most of us, it’s actually the Chinese New Year celebration of the Year of the Pig. The event is highly anticipated amongst Chinese communities, as well as areas and communities that may be non-Chinese but are heavily influenced by the culture and therefore celebrate such customs.
In the Chinese zodiac, the Pig is the 12th of all the animal signs. The Pig is often associated with characteristics such as optimistic, gentle, energetic, enthusiastic, carefree, warm, sociable, and fortunate, and wealthy.
