Have you heard anyone lately saying that 2019 is the year of the pig? If you’re not familiar with the Chinese zodiac, you might be wondering what exactly that means. If you are familiar with the Western zodiac which assigns ‘signs’ to people based on their birth month, then the Chinese zodiac will be easy to grasp. The Chinese zodiac occurs in a cycle of twelve lunar years, with each year having its own animal assigned to it. This year, the last in the 12-year cycle, is the year of the pig, as was 2007, 1995, 1983, 1971, and so forth.
So, what’s so special about the year of the pig? Keep reading to learn more and be sure to shop The Pink Pigs for fun pig-themed jewelry and other amazing gifts for animal lovers!
Meaning Of The Year Of The Pig
Those who were born in the year of the pig might get a bad rap. Legend has it that the pig is the twelfth and final sign in the Chinese zodiac because he took a nap and was the last one to show up, instilling the idea that pigs are lazy creatures. However, it is agreed that pigs have beautiful personalities and their chubby cheeks and large ears signify that they will have good fortune in life.
While many other signs are “all talk and no walk,” pigs are the opposite. They do not stand out in a crowd, but they will go above and beyond to fulfill their responsibilities. They tend to be materialistic and like to treat themselves, but they work hard to have the money to do so. Pigs are social butterflies, enjoy teamwork, and can find happiness in any situation. Pigs are very genuine and gentle, but can sometimes be over-friendly and overstep boundaries.
