Happy New Year (of the Golden Pig)

Golden PigHappy New Year to all my Chinese friends!

2007 is the year of the Pig, but apparently it is a special occasion where it is the year of the Golden Pig that only comes around once every 60 years!!

The Chinese are going crazy trying to have their kids in this most auspicious of years. If you want to try to squeeze in a kid in the year of the Golden Pig, don’t stress, it extends till the next lunar New Year, sometime in February of 2008. So, you don’t have to pop out the kid by December!
