Born in 2019? You’re a pig, says Chinese zodiac

Edmonton’s Chinese Catholic Parish celebrates the Year of the Pig

So wherever and however you are celebrating, let me wish you a very happy new year, and a prosperous and auspicious Year of the Pig.

This Dragon Dance set also includes a team of four dragon dancers, with a special mini figure dressed as a pig celebrating the coming Chinese New Year of the Pig.

Crustacean also incorporates colors and other food that have symbolic meaning into the Lunar New Year celebration, including red for good fortune or luck; gold for wealth; sticky rice and noodles for longevity; pork for land; squab and quail for heaven; seafood for sea; and more.

These temporary capacity reductions have been relatively successful.

The streets of Beijing and other major Chinese cities were quiet and empty after millions of people left to visit relatives or travel overseas during the year's biggest family holiday.

As is tradition on the first day of the New Year, families visit temples before gathering to celebrate with multi-generational banquets. This year, the streets are filled with handsome lanterns and bright decorations to mark the holiday.

Families gathered at home for banquets. Vendors sold toys branded with the British cartoon character Peppa Pig, which is enjoying a surge of popularity for the Year of the Pig. In Chinese astrology, each year belongs to a Chinese zodiac animal according to the 12-year cycle.

In Japan, the capital's famous Tokyo Tower was due to turn red in celebration of the New Year - a first for the city. It will be celebrated for around two weeks.

But the Year of the Pig signals a more relaxed year ahead, "Not busy like a monkey or a cow year".

Qian's hometown, Suzhou in the Southern China, uses many traditional Chinese New Year customs from the region.

A spokesman for Entertainment One - the Canadian media company that now produces the series - told Agence France-Presse that in the past year, more than half a million fake Peppa Pig items were seized and tens of thousands of online sale posts taken down. The phrase literally means "Happy New Year".
