A Happy Lunar New Year !
A Happy Chinese New Year! The swine (in Japanese INoShiShi) is the Chinese zodiac sign of this year. But depends on the Asian countries, there are two types of Chinese zodiac sigh. One is INoShiShi (swine) in Japan. Another is pig (swine) in Chinese, Korean ,and Asian countries except Japan. Why are there 2 types of swine? Why do only Japanese use INoShiShi ?
According to the Korean culture,this year is thought to be a special golden pig year.The golden pig might bring you big fortune in this year. Do you believe it? I bought small golden big at Korean souvenir shop.
