Chinese New Year 2019: the sign of the Pig

  Written by Alison
Xin nian kuaile! Happy New Year!

The year 2019 in the Chinese calendar begins on February 5th. In China it will be the year of the Pig, the last sign of the Chinese zodiac. This is the end of a cycle, a year of audits and relaxation.

It is a year devoted to leisure and the discovery of the pleasures of life. This is not a very ambitious atmosphere but the element of 2019 is Earth and it still guarantees a good stability in our business. The end-of-cycle aspect makes it necessary to look back over the last few years to decide what to keep, what to get rid of, and what remains to be consolidated. This concerns how everyone will want to cleanse their business, their relationships, and their projects, so as to start again on solid basis, healthy, stable, and purified.

In China and more generally in all of Southeast Asia, the New Year is a very popular holiday that gives rise to great agitation, full of wishes and a good mood. This effervescence is, of course, found in all of the Asian neighborhoods in the big cities on the planet, which organize various events on this occasion.

If you want to participate in this beautiful party, use and abuse the color red! This color brings luck and fortune in Asia, the Chinese make red cakes, decorate their home with lanterns, and make dragon masks of this color.

The custom is that on the New Year we cook the largest possible fish for New Year's Eve because what's left over is a sign of prosperity for the whole year.

Finally, treat yourself to fireworks and firecrackers to chase away evil spirits.

The Rat: Your dynamic, expressive temperament loves celebrations, but is wary of the reckless spending involved. This New Year should live up to your expectations: flamboyant interior red paper decorations and a few tasty delicacies in the same colour, to bring good fortune and prosperity, with cookies to add to the fun. All this will be less expensive than caviar or venison, whilst being much more exotic!

Your proverb or motto: "If you are content with what you have, you are already rich." Lao-Tzu.

The Ox : Here is an excellent opportunity for relaxation, which you will have fully deserved, being such a hard worker! Your love of customs and family reunions is perfectly in tune with this season of festivity and wishes for good fortune throughout the year. Here you have an opportunity to excel in your culinary skills, with simple but very symbolic dishes. Don't hesitate to search the net, which abounds with good, traditional recipes.

Your proverb or motto: "He who does not progress each day, takes a step backwards every day." Confucius.

The Tiger : Your natural creative flair means you will adore the preparation of a Chinese celebration meal! Anything goes, as long as you follow certain rules: scarlet decorations to attract prosperity to your home; fortune cookies to amuse your friends and family; and don't forget to include the obligatory fish dish, in copious amounts, as the leftovers (though this could just be the fishbone) will ensure you financial security for the whole of next year.

Your proverb or motto: "You can only see your own faults through the eyes of others." Book of Chinese Proverbs 2nd Century B.C.

The Rabbit: Here's an opportunity for Rabbits to spoil their loved-ones as they so love to do. Add a touch of magic to the world of your friends and family with an original and unconventional celebration meal. Quick research will give you all the pointers, from an unusual meal to the cheeky little cookies, not to mention the decorations abounding with zest for life and sincere good wishes. You will provide great amusement for children, if you let them help you on this occasion.

Your proverb or motto: "A good speech can do some good, but a good example speaks more directly to the heart". Book of Chinese Wisdom 1876.


The Dragon : You love starting things and you're not bothered about doing it all again less than two months after western celebrations! You will therefore fully enjoy the pleasure of gathering your friends together and wishing them prosperity with a generosity that can only reinforce your prestige. Make lists, because your shopping items will be more unconventional than usual: red paper, fortune cookies, fish for the celebration meal and firecrackers to celebrate the New Year!

Your special proverb: "Experience is like a candle, which only gives light to the one who bears it." Confucius

The Snake : Here's another great opportunity to devote yourself to your favourite activity: getting your family and loved-ones together around a celebration meal that will be both festive and traditional. As a keen and talented cook, you will be keen to make your cookies yourself and won't forget to prepare the ritual fish, whose remains will ensure your prosperity throughout the year. Delegate the cutting out and collages of red paper to your children, to complete the atmosphere!

Your proverb or motto: "Look scrupulously at yourself, but only discreetly at others." Confucius

The Horse : With your fiery, optimistic temperament, you love celebrations, especially if they contain an element of the exotic or the unusual. With your habit of putting on a great spread, you will take care you have some left over after your celebration meal, as a guarantee you won't lack for anything next year. If you are going to aim big, look to the detail! Decorations, cookies and cut-out figures are a must, as well as spring-cleaning your home!

Your proverb or motto: "All the flowers of the future are in today's sowings." Chinese Proverbs and Sayings 1882.

The Goat: For you, this is a wonderful opportunity to discover far-eastern customs and traditions at their most festive and convivial. Go for it! Surprise those close to you with an exotic celebration meal, filled with colour and zest for life. With a bit of love and imagination, you will organise an evening that will remain engraved on everyone's hearts.

Your proverb or motto: "A small income every day is worth more than a large fortune." Chinese proverbs 1909.


The Monkey: You will leap at any opportunity for a celebration, but it would be a good idea to imbue yourself with the symbolic value of the New Year, with all its promise for the future, and the importance of decisions taken and projects begun. A good way to mark the occasion is to gather your loved-ones around an unconventional meal table and play the game, with fortune cookies filled with wisdom or wishes written on red paper...

Your proverb or motto: "A response that doesn't resolve a problem creates thousands of others." China in Proverbs 1909.

The Rooster: Another reference point for your sign, which is very attached to the rhythms of the seasons and balance in all things. Relax this year by organising a celebration meal that will be out of the common and could only win over your loved-ones, who won't be used to such exotic fantasies. With your customary skill, you will have knocked up a delightful meal at no cost and in no time, with fish and home-made fortune cookies, as well as decorating your home with masks and dragons that will be larger than life.

Your proverb or motto: "The man who is patient on a day of anger will escape a hundred days of remorse." Chinese Proverbs 1909

The Dog : There is a shadowy side in you, inclining towards pessimism and criticism, which sometimes makes you unapproachable. Now is the time to unwind by surprising everyone with an unusual celebration meal. Vivid red decorations to warm people's hearts, little cookies to bring happiness and a traditional meal with all the symbols of prosperity: that's what will define you better than any declarations of love or friendship, with which you are generally sparing.

Your proverb or motto: "A good man is just and upright, but not rigid and inflexible. He knows when to yield, but not bend over backwards." Confucius




The Pig : For a lover of sensual pleasure like you, an extra celebration meal can only be a delight! In the space of an evening, you will be able to forget your potential worries in convivial warmth, full of plans and wishes of prosperity. Your natural love of good food will lead you towards the most appropriate dishes for the occasion and you will take great pleasure in adorning your home with bright red paper decorations.

Your special proverb: "Better to add life to your years than years to your life." Chinese Proverbs and Sayings 1822.

In chinese astrology, the dragon is too proud to accept the criticism and the dog caustic. These are indeed two opposite personalities ... Unable to understand or solve their problems, there is animosity between them and major conflicts punctuated by serious clashes. The joy of life and confidence DRAGON opposed melancholy and distrust of the DOG !
