The Year of the Pig:
The Pig is the twelfth and last of all the zodiac animals. According to legend the Jade Empreror said the order would be decided by the timing of the animals arrival to his party. The pig was extremely late- last and thus is his placement.

The Pig is also associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) hài (亥), and the hours 9–11 in the night. In terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Pig is yin. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth.

The pig symbolizes such characteristic traits as diligence, compassion and generosity. Pigs enjoy entertaining and life in general and others enjoy their company. Pigs tend to indulge a little too much in just about everything. Pigs are profoundly giving and enjoy helping others, sometimes a little too much. Pigs are all about honesty and expect the same in return.
