The Chinese New Year 2019 is all but here. And for that, you might need to prepare yourself too. It might be the case that you do not have much of an interest in other cultures like the Chinese, but let us reassure you, there is so much you will get to learn, especially about the 2019 year of the pig. Each Chinese year is denoted by an animal, which then goes on to decide how the entire year will go, depending on the moods and traits of that very animal.
The Story behind Year of the Pig 2019
There are so many myths surrounding the actuality of how these years came to be named. This time, for instance, is the year of the pig 2019. One legend has it that the Emperor back in the ages was deciding the order in which the Chinese calendar animals were to be decided. The Pig was late, because he overslept, which got him the last slot in the calendar order. Yet another story goes, which talks about how the wolf destroyed the pig’s house because he wanted an earlier slot. The pig got late because he was rebuilding his home again. Nevertheless, this does not at all undermine the potential of the pig, or how it affects the year for the people at large.
