Do Pigs Fly?

You might wonder but there is a saying that goes, “when pigs fly”. This is generally a figure of speech and is meant to signify an impossible endeavor and fact. Sometimes, people use this term for a humorous effect, as a way of saying something that will never happen. However, at times, it could be used in a more serious context depending on the nature of the subject raised. Whatever it be, it is common these days to send gifts of flying pigs as a way of making light of an issue. When Ruth Plumly Thompson wrote her best selling The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, she included a character called “Pigasus” which was a flying pig character. Hence, they also make nice gift ideas. If you are seeking flying pig statues to send someone, why not consider our adorable little pig figurines or a pig door stops for functional effect?

The Chinese have 12 animals in the zodiac calendar and one of them is a pig which is also the last animal sign on the Chinese zodiac calendar. The Year of the Pig is a recurring position and refers to years like 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007 and the future years of 2019, 2031, 2043 and so forth. According to the Chinese, a person's characteristics are decided by their birth year's zodiac animal sign and one of the five recognized elements. Hence, pigs are thought to be diligent and compassionate possessing great concentration. Those born in the year of the pig are believed to be able to focus on setting goals and getting all they want.
