That’s some pig!

Following on past holiday spectaculars for Halloween and Thanksgiving, the Empire State Building is set to brighten up the sky once again tonight with a timely, dazzling light extravaganza.

The iconic skyscraper will be putting on a special dynamic light display both tonight and tomorrow evening to celebrate Lunar New Year and the Year of the Pig. (Because it’s always a good idea to start a new year off with a giant, over-the-top light show, right?)

The Lunar New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, typically has festivities that last for 15 days or more. If you were born in the Year of the Pig (1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007) that means you have 12 months of prosperity to look forward to.
