A lucky pig?

I was born in the year of the Metal Pig, and we’ve just entered the year of the pig again.
To quote from the article: “Astrologers say that people born during the Year of the Pig are lucky, as a pig is a symbol of plenty, as well as of fertility, and many get married during the Year of the Pig to guarantee healthy, wealthy offspring.”

Although I don’t believe in Chinese astrology any more than I believe in the European equivalent, it’s a rather nice, cosy feeling to believe I have a lucky, fertile year ahead of me! 🙂

  • It did indeed turn out to be a fertile year, as my Pig daughter, Anna, will probably agree. 🙂
