A sign of the times, or something

Today's Urban Dictionary Word of the Day: gong xi fa cai (though they spell the last word incorrectly as "chai").

Never thought I'd see the day when a commonplace Mandarin greeting for the Lunar New Year would become an entry in a glossary of contemporary slang.

Happy Year of the Pig, everyone! May you enjoy much bacon and (since this is a Chinese New Year after all) fat piggy banks to carry you through to the next year.

so i had a conversation with the boy today and he said "in the chinese culture, it is year of the pig, in japanese culture, why is it the year of the wild pig or wild boar?" and since I had no proper answer for it, all I could say was "year of the pig seems so...not cute." yes, I am not wise AT ALL. Happy New Year!!!
