OVERVIEW

Within the Chinese zodiac, the Year of the Rat officially starts the first day of the new lunar year, which follows the phases of the moon. In 2020, Lunar New Year day is Saturday, January 25.

The Chinese and Vietnamese zodiacs are represented by 12 animals。 According to legend, the Jade Emperor invited the animals of his kingdom to enter a race through the countryside。 The first 12 to first finish the long race would each rule over one year every 12 years。 The 12 animals are: pig, ox, tiger, rabbit (or cat in Vietnam), dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, and rat。

Each zodiac animal brings its own personality and characteristics to the year. Can you imagine what a rat year might be like?
