Chinese new year 2019, the year of the pig - Cantori

The Chinese New Year is celebrated by millions of people all over the world. The date may vary from year to year, but always falls between January 21st and February 20th. In the current year will be celebrated on February 5st and officially the year of the Pig will start.


Chinese New Year is actually the Western definition of the Spring Festival or Lunar New Year, in fact the Chinese calendar is defined lunisolar; the lunar calendar duration is equal to one calendar year.
The festival then coincides with the second new moon after the winter solstice and, unlike the Western New Year, the festivities last for two weeks.


In the Chinese tradition, twelve different animals are cyclically assigned to different years. The legend tells that these animals (mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig) were chosen because they responded to the call of Buddha. Each of these animals have a particular characteristic that also significantly influence the traits of people born under their zodiac sign.


People who were born under the sign of the pig (also called wild boar) are initially a bit rude until they won their trust to the others. Then they become gallant, courteous, and kind. Never retreat and are endowed with great courage. They are chivalrous, loyal and honest. They have great capacity for concentration.
Their fault could be the difficult approach to the others.

Those who were born under this sign love clean and modern spaces characterized by simple and definite lines. Nothing must make them lose their focus.
