January 25, 2019

It is Friday so let’s keep it light and have a bit of fun. Before we get into our main topic of the Year Of The Pig first let us pay respect to the Year Of The Dog. It was a great year with a lot of running around to get the jobs done (sometimes in circles), we will miss you Year Of The Dog but also looking forward to less hair on the couch this year 🙂

The Bad News

If you were born in the year of the pig then you have offended the “god of age” in Chinese mythology. Hey, not your fault but it still means you will have bad luck during a pig year.

The Good News

It’s mythology so you are probably OK. But if you are superstitious then you just need to be more careful in every single aspect of your life this year if you were born in the year of a pig. What, every single aspect of your life, that’s a bit much, no? Yes, yes it is, but those are the rules.

HLH will be taking a break from Feb 1 to Feb 13 for Chinese New Year and returning to full rapid manufacturing on Feb 14. Talk to our team today if you have any questions are concerns.
