This week (specifically February 5th), millions of people celebrated the Chinese New Year, beginning the Year of The Pig.
The Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed his house. He had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take twelfth place. In Chinese culture, pigs are the symbol of wealth. Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well.
To celebrate the occasion, courtesy of our friends at Well Go USA, we’re giving away 3 ninja stress warriors to help relieve any tension you have so you can start off the new year stress free!
