Chinese markets are closed throughout next week to celebrate lunar new year. HE Wang Baodong, the Chinese Ambassador to Tonga explained that the Year of the Pig carries the meaning of Honesty, Tolerance, Happiness and Prosperity.

"Chinese are the third-largest foreign-born group in the U.S.; as of 2017, there are 6 million of us and Dealmoon gets 17.6 million clicks a month from these consumers", said Cofounder of Dealmoon, Jennifer Wang.

The 10-day festival which begins on Friday is the largest of its kind outside of Asia and according to authorities Sydneysiders will be treated to cultural delights centering around this year's zodiac sign, the pig. To help celebrate the Chinese New Year, which officially kicks off on February 5 (though celebrations and activities continue through the 15th), Chinese cuisine is in order. It's mean return since 1928 is 18.1%, the best on an Chinese year. Each year is represented by an animal with 2019 being the year of the pig.
