2019 - Year Of The Earth Pig
(February 5, 2019 - January 24, 2020) The Chinese New Year 2019 or the Spring Festival (Lunar New Year) is celebrated on Tuesday, February 5, 2019, according to the traditional Chinese Calendar. 2019 will be the year of the Earth Pig. The Pig is a representation of diligence, kindness, and generosity. This holiday is celebrated in countries like Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Australia, the Philippines, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Southeast Asia and Mauritius, but also Europe, Australia, New Zealand, America, Canada, especially in the areas with a big Chinese community. In Mandarin, “Happy Chinese New Year” is “xin nian kuai le” (pronounced shin nee-an kwai le), which is a formal greeting typically used for strangers and means “New Year happiness.” A shortened version is “xin nian hao” (pronounced shin nee-an how) is more often used for friends and family. “Guo nian hao” (pronounced gor nee-an how) is also used as a New Year greeting and means “pass the New Year well.”
