According to the Chinese zodiac, 2019 is the year of the Pig. People born under this sign are seen as energetic and enthusiastic. They are motivated to work hard for the things they want. They love entertainment, enjoying life, and treating themselves.
Even if you don’t believe in zodiac signs, pigs are loved for a number of reasons. Farmers love that they are one of nature’s trash disposals. The internet loves bacon. And no self-respecting barbecue-er or tailgate-er would show up without racks of ribs. Pigs are also known to be very intelligent and make good pets (as long as you have room for them). We raise our kids on stories of Wilbur, Babe, Peppa, Porky, and of course, the three little pigs.
If you were born in a year of the Pig, are a fan of ham, or just think they’re cute, we’ve got mugs for you!
1. Pass the Dip
I have—no lie—eight different barbecue restaurants within a ten-minute drive from my house. Most of them have been open for decades. Pork is a serious business in the South.
Sometimes you just have to get away from everyone else for a while and commune with your pal.
Just focus on the really important things.
They’re not from Guinea, and they’re officially part of the rodent family, but you know what? We call them pigs, and that’s close enough. Plus: how cute and fuzzy are they?
5. Drawn to Them
If you’re a fan of the animated pigs, try one of these adorable Happy Times anime mugs!
These are just a few of the pig mugs we have available. Remember, U.S. orders of two or more mugs get free shipping!
