Hello  All !

I wish  you  all  a  very  happy  New  Chinese  Year  of the Pig!

My wife  is a  "Pig"  and   so it  should  be a good  year  for us

I am a  "Rat"  :  according to the   Chinese  almanac   Pigs  and  Rats  make  perfect  life  partners

 Smiley

Cheers

Peter

PS:  The  attached   "history" of how the  12   Years  of the  Chinese  Zodiac  were  named  is very interesting  - and  very   funny !  I  just  LOVE the  reason  why the  Pig  came  in  last .......    Cheesy

Thanks Peter,

And I like how the rat came in first.
My sympathies go to the ox who was outwitted by the crafty rat!

Dear Peter,

Thanks and Happy New Year to you and your family too! Stay blessed and healthy!

My father too is a pig, but probably older than your wife by 3 cycles!

Best,
Samson

Dear Joey,

Fire rooster is good! My daughter Josephine too was born in the year of fire rooster! In 2017! Grin

By the way, by Chinese tradition, the 7th day of the new year, i.e. today, is known as  人日 (Renri), which means a birthday for everyone! So, everybody Happy Birthday! Cheesy

Best,
Samson
