Happy Chinese New Year

Happy Chinese New Year. Gong xi fa cai! Xin nian kwai le! At our General Meeting yesterday, we celebrated with a fantastic traditional Lion Dance followed by a delicious lunch at a Chinese restaurant.

For many of our members this was their first Lion Dance and the smiles, "Oohhhhs" and "Aahhhs" were delightful!

2019 is the year of the Pig. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth. It is also yin (of yang). Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well. Pigs might not stand out in a crowd. But they are very realistic. Others may be all talk and no action. Pigs are the opposite.

Though not wasteful spenders, they will let themselves enjoy life. They love entertainment and will occasionally treat themselves. They are a bit materialistic, but this is motivation for them to work hard. Being able to hold solid objects in their hands gives them security.

They are energetic and are always enthusiastic, even for boring jobs. If given the chance, they will take positions of power and status. They believe that only those people have the right to speak, and that’s what they want.

Research Chinese Zodiac to discover what year/animal you and family are to discover what the year of the Pig has in store for you.
