Dear Anker fans,
Due to the upcoming Chinese New Year and Spring Festival, we will be out of office from Feb 4th through Feb 11th. Expect limited communication from us here on the community board during this time.
It’s the year of the Pig, so we thought we’d share a legend of the pig and how it became a part of the Chinese Zodiac.
In the Chinese zodiac legend, the Jade Emperor had called for all animals to race to the heavenly gate - the first 12 would be a part of the Zodiac. As you can imagine, the Pig arrived in last place. Why he was last, however, has two sides:
One side claims that the Pig had stopped for a nap on his way to the gate, and sauntered in at the very last second.
The other side claims that, because of the Pigs’ clearly disadvantaged shape and lack of physical prowess, he was destined to come in last.
What do you think about the Pig? Did he sleep on the way there or was it just too much for him?
Let us know what you think happened to the pig in the comments below, and be sure to include an image of the pig for good measure.
Best wishes for the Year of the Pig,
The Anker Team
