Year Of The Pig Celebrations Kick Off Chinese New Year In Colorado

The Chinese zodiac runs on a 12 year cycle with the animals are the Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and then Pig.

However, Peppa is now more popular than ever in the Middle Kingdom.

Compared to new year celebrations in the west, Chinese New Year is a 15-day celebration with many preparations and traditions!

Celebrations in major Chinese cities including Beijing and Shanghai were more quiet than usual after authorities previous year banned fireworks due to pollution and safety concerns. People in China often spend it visiting family, eating special food and attending festivals.

San Francisco Mayor London Breed, California Senator Scott Wiener and other city officials walked in front of the procession, waving to Chinatown residents and tourists with New Year's greetings.

In Hong Kong, famous for its dim sum and barbeque pork, one company is partnering with restaurants to promote Lunar New Year dishes cooked with its "vegan pork" made with ingredients including soybeans and peas.

The Park Hill Supermarket also held a big celebration on Saturday.

The Lunar New Year takes place on Tuesday, and the coming year will be the Year of the Pig.

Nevertheless, experts expect Chinese consumers to be more economical in their shopping compared to previous years due to caution over China's ongoing trade war with the United States.
