From the 9th of February to the 4th of March was the Chinese New Year Festival in Sydney. There was a big colorful parade in the streets of China Town and thousands of people celebrating the Year of the Pig.

People born in the Year of the Pig are marked by their warmth and geniality. Their scrupulously clean homes are focused on comfort for themselves, their family and visitors. Funding this lifestyle requires considerable hard work, making the Pig one of the most industrious of the Chinese Zodiac signs.

Pigs are creative and intelligent and are content to accept the world as it is. They use their sharp minds for the benefit of others, but must take care that their good natured generosity is not abused.
