My New Year Snow Globe  card  that I drew for 2019   celebration. Let’s ring in the New Year with a party.






I am Lucky we celebrate 2 New Years. Chinese New Year this year is Feb  5th,  And we celebrate  the Year of the PIG.

The  Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed his house. He had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take twelfth place.

Pigs have a beautiful personality and are blessed with good fortune in life.


We celebrate family and ancestors with food ,family and fun.  Lisa
