Can you imagine what Ronald Reagan and Hillary Clinton have in common? How about Lucille Ball and Wolfang Amadeus Mozart? Or even Ernest Hemmingway and Woody Allen?
All of these people, and others listed below, were born in the Chinese Year of the Pig.
Those born in 1899, 1911, 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983 or 1995 (or any year plus or minus 12 from those dates) are born in the Year of the Pig.

There are certain personality traits assigned to each of the twelve Chinese Years. Those born in the year of the Pig are fiercely loyal and their relationships tend to last a lifetime. They are trustworthy people with an intellectual curiosity beyond the norm. This often creates voracious readers seeking knowledge on all subjects.
In most cases, the Pig will stand by and let this happen, believing in his or her heart that it will all work out in the end. When (if) it doesn't the Pig will not be hardened or more insightful the next time. They will once again set themselves up for potential failure and just as assuredly believe it will all be okay.
It is not impossible to anger a Pig, especially when someone tries to tell him or her that things are not the way they seem. But a Pig does not like conflict and will get over their anger quickly. Pigs do not hold grudges.
Some people think the Pig is a snob because they are so meticulous with their manners and etiquette. In reality this is just natural to a Pig and can't be helped. It is just the way things should be.
Nothing, absolutely nothing, will stop a Pig if he or she is on a mission, especially a mission to help someone. The Pig will always proceed full steam ahead, never retreating or even hesitating. To a Pig, there is no doubt everything will be fine in the end.
Pigs often become entertainers or politicians; the entertainer Pig tries to make people happy and the political Pig tries to make things right for the world.
To all of you: "Gung Hay Fat Choy" or "Best wishes and Congratulations. Have a prosperous and good year!"
