The Year of the Pig officially begins on February 5, but thousands gathered early at the 20 Chinese New Year Carnival at the Chinese Catholic Parish.

It's quite the official image reversal from a year ago when Peppa got into a bit of trouble in China after becoming a counterculture icon.

Better still, Chinese New Year is a season, not a single day - celebrations. It is traditional that each new year in the Chinese calendar is marked by a different animal, the animals represent the Chinese Zodiac, also known as Sheng Xiao and a part of a 12-year cycle.

China is one of the most meat-eating countries. Pigs symbolise good fortune and wealth in Chinese culture and this year's holiday brings a proliferation of porcine merchandise, greetings and decorations.

"Animal agriculture is responsible for more greenhouse gases than all the world's transportation systems combined", PETA Asia campaigner Jason Baker said.

In 2016, China had issued dietary guidelines urging people to reduce their meat consumption.

The mini-parade is a prelude to a major Chinatown celebration of the Lunar New Year with a more spectacular grand parade in San Francisco that has a history of more than 100 years.
