Chinese New Year is celebrated at the turn of the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar, which is based on both Gregorian and lunar-solar calendar systems. It can land any time between late January and mid-February, and this year it’s on Tuesday, February 5. 

According to the Chinese 12-year animal zodiac cycle, the Chinese year beginning in 2019 is the Year of the Pig and it begins on Chinese New Year’s Day. In Chinese element theory, each zodiac sign is associated with one of the five elements, and this year is the Earth Pig. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Pig years are believed to be the unluckiest for people born in the previous Years of the Pig. However, the bubs due this year will be A-OK! 

The Pig is the 12th in the cycle, and for people born in the Year of the Pig their lucky numbers are 2, 5, 8; their lucky colours are yellow, grey, brown and gold; and their lucky plants are the hydrangea, daisy and marguerite. Pigs should endeavour to avoid their unlucky colours red, blue and green, and their unlucky numbers 1 and 7. 

Pigs are honest, gentle, loyal, generous, compassionate, diligent and warm-hearted. They have great concentration in that once they set a goal, they will devote all their energy to achieving it. On the other hand, their weaknesses include naivety, sluggishness, short-temperedness and gullibility. 

Wondering if you’re a Pig? Years of the Pig include 1935 and 1995 (Wood Pig), 1947 and 2007 (Fire Pig), 1959 and 2019 (Earth Pig), 1911 and 1971 (Metal Pig), and 1923 and 1983 (Water Pig). Famous Pigs include Henry VIII, Ernest Hemingway, Stephen King, Alfred Hitchcock, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Hillary Clinton, Julie Andrews, Mark Wahlberg, Luke Wilson, and Mila Kunis.
