It’s the Year of the Pig. That means it is the 12th year of the 12-year cycle of the Chinese zodiac. Next year will be the Year of the Rat. Last year was the Year of the Dog. I offer that information in case you want to spark a dinner conversation. The Chinese zodiac signs, in order, are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. Hope I got that right. This stuff is not intuitive. I am fond of pigs. I grew up with them.
