Happy New Year: Xīn nián kuài lè!
The Lunar New Year falls on February 5, 2019.

2019 is the Year of the Pig according to the Chinese zodiac calendar.

It is a beautiful, peace loving, social and very lucky animal that is great for money and wealth.

If you were born in the years 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and of course this year, you will be celebrating with an extra sip of wine<oink, oink>.

As stated on the Chinese New Year website:

The Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed his house. He had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take twelfth place.

The Pig is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) hài (亥), and the hours 9–11 in the night. In terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Pig is yin. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth.

Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well.”

Besides ringing in the new year with a swine and cheese party, how about an entertaining dinner guest that’s not a boar…“sow what?”, you ask?
A pig?
The Stinking Pig Game will also beat the winter blues and cure cabin fever as it will get everybody oinking with great laughter.

Poke his belly to hear him sing and then you can pass him around by rolling the die, but if he toots in your hand then you will get a token and the person with fewest tokens by the end of the game will win.

Happy Chinese New Year! The Lunar New Year falls on February 16th, 2018.

This year is the Year of the Dog according to the Chinese zodiac calendar.

 

Chinese New Year - Year of the Dog

 

If you were born in the years 1934, 1946, 1958, 1970, 1982, 1994, 2006 and of course this year, you will be celebrating more so with an extra sip of you know what<wink wink>.

Astrologer and feng shui master Paul Ng of Toronto, says this year can be classified as a year of conflict for people born in the Year of the Dog.

“They usually confront uncertainties,” he tells Global News, adding people born in the Year of the Dog should not gamble this year and should take care of their health.

According to his predictions for 2018, people born in a year of the dog should be more “conservative” and focus on more practical investments, like real estate. And while their income is stable, they should avoid stock markets.

When it comes to relationships, Ng adds this is a “weak” year for people born in a year of the dog. It may not be a good year to get married.

And when it comes to health, if you were born in a year of the dog, watch your eating habits and exercise regularly. “You may be prone to small ailments a lot, especially to do with your digestive system.

Breaking down the years of Chinese New Year

Ng also broke down some of his predictions for people born in specific years of the dog.

1994: “You should stay put and don’t take risks. You are prone to accidents.”

1982: “You are good with people and partnerships.” He suggests looking at jobs in public relations.

1970: “There would be stumbling blocks on the way.” Things may not be cooperative at work with colleagues, he says, so you should take on any problems yourself.”

The founder and creative partner of Danna Bananas will be celebrating this year.

“I know my sweet puppy and all your lovable fur children will bring you luck and prosperity this Chinese New Year.”

As there are so many health benefits of eggs: high in iron, B12, vitamin D and choline, “I love to eat eggs not just for

breakfast.

This pawsitively, quirky egg mold will come in handy to fry them up with.”

Cheers!
