2019 is the Year of the Pig. The Chinese zodiac moves in a 12-year cycle, which means those born in 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, and 2019 are also known as Pigs. According to the Asian astrology, your year of birth and the animal determines a lot about your personality traits. People born in the Year of the Pig are diligent, compassionate, and generous. Apart from being a time to feast and reunite with family, the festivities are accompanied by a large array of customs and rituals. Visit us this holiday season for a variety of cultural experiences you won’t want to miss.
