ARE you quick-witted and resourceful? Or maybe you're more quiet and elegant?

This week marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year, the most important traditional festival of the Chinese calendar.

2019 is the year of the pig - one of 12 animals that make up the Chinese zodiac and which rotate in a cycle each year. 

The celebration, also known as the Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, takes place on the first new moon that appears between January 21 and February 20.
