The 2019 year on the Chinese lunar calendar is the Year of the Pig. The pig is believed to have a beautiful personality and are seen as being blessed with good fortune in life. Despite ancient lore that suggests the pig is 12th and final in the Zodiac order because it overslept a meeting ordered by the Jade Emperor, today Chinese people continue to view the pig as a symbol of wealth and good fortune.
