Tuesday, Feb. 5, marks the official start of the year of the pig, which PS 203 Principal Deborah Florio said is "characterized as being warmhearted, good-tempered, wild, honest and gentle". "You help us out on so many different levels".

Hundreds of thousands of people around the world, including some in Denver, are celebrating the Chinese New Year. It was initially designed in the format of Gordon Ramsay's "MasterChef". The peaceful and relaxing atmosphere in the kitchen made the event feel more like a family gathering. Not only does each birth year correspond to an animal, but in Chinese element theory each sign is also associated with one of the five elements and can further determine a person's traits. Groups made typical Chinese dishes like steamed fish with minced pork, sirloin with tomato, and of course, dumplings.

"[The] friends I made here make me feel less homesick", first-year Peter Fan from Suzhou, China, said, "but honestly, I do miss getting red envelopes and unbelievable food back home".

Similar to gift giving during Christmas, giving red envelopes with money is an important tradition during Chinese New Year. In addition, there are many superstitious beliefs and rules.

Each year in the Chinese tradition is represented by one of 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac -rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig.

Students and educators at a Bayside elementary school rang in the Year of the Pig in a very festive fashion. And, like a real-life pig, they are known to be lazy and over-indulgent.
