Year of the Pig

Our February calendar is filled with many different events and outings.  Since it’s February………. It’s cold, wet and one of the dreariest months of the year.  So we enjoyed a themed Happy Hour for the Chinese New Year – The Year of the Pig.  You probably know there are 12 Chinese Zodiac animals used to represent years, 2019 is the year of the pig.

What is the Chinese Zodiac? A zodiac system has existed in Chinese Culture since the Qin dynasty, more than 2,000 years ago.  Over time the zodiacs became more and more integrated into everyday life, with different meanings and characteristics assigned to each animal.

The Pig in Chinese culture are the symbol of wealth.  They enjoy life, love entertainment and are energetic and enthusiastic.

A few of us got together and made won tons and put cream cheese in the middle and fried them.  Panda Express sells their dipping sauces and we placed wontons and sauce on each table. It was so good, we’re doing it again next year!
