We’re welcoming February with arms wide open as it marks the start of the lunar year which means that the Chinese New Year celebrations will officially begin! This year is considered the Year of the Pig and 5th of February is the date you all need to remember this year. As the 12th sign in the Chinese Zodiac, pigs are seen to be independent, sincere, loyal and decisive. Anyone born in 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995 & 2007 can consider themselves as the lucky ones who were born in the pig year.
