Happy Year of the Pig – 豬

pig.jpg Tomorrow starts the celebration of Chinese New Year, and 2007 is the year of the pig.

The year of the pig brings increased fertility and virility, optimism, warmth, and, um, fires and explosions.  

It also brings “The Pig Song” (alternatively called “Song of Pig”) – by Xiang Xiang.

This song has been downloaded over a billion times in Asia. 

Okay, this is in Chinese, maybe I should put the lyrics in here.

“Pig, you have two holes on your nose
When you catch cold, you are snorting
Pig, you have black eyes which we cannot see beyond
Pig, you have two big ears
And you cannot hear that I’m cursing you silly
Pig, you have a curling tail which you cannot run without
Pig head, pig brain, pig body and pig tail
You are a good baby who eats everything
Everyday you won’t wake up till noon
And you never brush your teeth and you never fight”

Happy Year of the Pig. 

And oh – it is good luck to eat dumplings in the next 2 weeks.  It is a Chinese New Year thing.  [I am not sure about pork dumplings, though.]
