Looks like I am not the only one getting ready for the Year of the Pig. I noticed that the Nai Ni Chen dancers use "Year of the Boar".
from Focus on Culture:
Year of the Pig - http://www.china.org.cn/english/en-12sx/index.htm#12
Hai represents month ten in the Chinese lunar calendar, when everything begins to stagnate. It also represents 9 PM to 11 PM, when all is silent apart from the pig's snores.
