Fast approaching is the Chinese New Year. In 2019 this begins on Tuesday 5th February and is the year of the Pig ?
Well I know very little about Chinese culture but it would appear that pigs are a symbol of wealth.
The Chinese New Year is know as the Spring Festival in modern mainland China.
It is celebrated at the turn of the traditional lunisolar Chinese calendar with a 7 day public holiday.
The interesting thing for me is that the lucky colours for 2019 in the Chinese calendar are Red, Pink and Orange which are associated with the fire element.
So as a happy coincidence, I will be concentrating on lots of lovely, vibrant red designs for February. Maybe I should check out some piggy styles too…
Chinese jewellery, hmmm…. now there is a little challenge for me over the coming weeks.
