Oh~~Gerry_g , You are misunderstand my motive.
In the Chinese world one of the twelve animals symbolizing the Twelve Branches used to designate years (according to lunar calendar)

1.Mouse 2.Cattle 3.Tiger 4.Rabbit 5.Dragon 6.Snake
7.Horse 8.Sheep 9.Monkey 10.Chicken 11.Dog 12.Pig

THe traditions start in 770-476 B.C.

My favorite time will be 2012, as I was born in the year of the dragon (1964), or I belive I was anyway after looking it up. The source could have been correct or not. But, since the symbol for any year would be considered lucky for someone in the world, it wouldn't be bad to invite good Karma by wishing good luck to all, so best wishes for the most abundant luck for all! Also, thank you very much cky for thinking about everyone in the creation of your wonderful pig!

I love sausage! And pork chops. And fried wanton, and sweet and sour pork, and stir fried pork with vegetables and rice....

I know it is 'cky', but some years are more auspicious than others depending on the animal chosen (and weather that animal coincides with the animal you were allotted at the year of your birth if I remember correctly). I was merely wondering of all the animals how lucky or auspicious is the 'Pig Year'
