I would like everyone to meet Margherita! Although her zodiac animal is a pig, she relates much more to a cat. Maybe because of her cat, Tappo. She was born in 1983 and says that she has many characteristics of those born in the year of the pig - friendly, generous and loves to eat.
Margherita and her husband, Nick, live in Milan but had the chance to celebrate Lunar New Year in three different places all on their first trip to Asia. Read on to find out what her favorite part of the celebration is.
As an added bonus because Margherita wish she was the cat, here is a cute illustration I saw on YouTube as to how the animals of the Chinese zodiac came to be. *Disclaimer: no scientific evidence this is true. Enjoy!
