Omg! It’s Chinese New Year of the pig., I’m not sure if in the Chinese culture this animal is despised or revered., but this has resulted in a dilemma for the Emirates Airline I saw their ad wishing a new year without mentioning the said animal. Pig is still a derogatory term in English while bacon is revered 😋. Let’s hope the year of the pig may bring tariff down, economy back on the roll and Huawei out of the hot waters. IMG

The Pig (豬) is the twelfth of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar. In the continuous sexagenary cycle of sixty years, every twelfth year corresponds to hai, 亥 (the twelfth of the twelve Earthly Branches); this re-recurring twelfth year is commonly called the Year of the Pig (豬年).
