(Belated) Happy Chinese New Year!
The Lunar New Year was celebrated earlier this week, with the New Year being the Year of the Pig in the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac. (As each year also has one of five associated elements, this year is Year of the Earth Pig in the full 60 year, or sexegenary, cycle.) We don't usually re-use images for ADAPs, but on this occasion we'll make an exception and reproduce Andreas Herzog's ADAP from several years ago, wishing readers a belated "Gong xi fa cai" (in Mandarin) and "Gung hay fat choy" (in Cantonese).
