Similar to Western zodiac signs, Chinese zodiac animals have a unique set of personality traits influencing those born under each sign. Each of the zodiac animals are also affiliated with one of the 5 Elements - metal, wood, water, fire, earth - when an animal reappears after 12 years its elemental affiliation shifts. For example, 2012 was the Year of the Water Dragon, 2024 is the Year of the Wood Dragon, and 2036 will be the Year of the Fire Dragon. The Chinese zodiac follows a 12-year cycle, with each year represented by one animal: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig, in that order. Chinese mythology has it that the Jade Emperor set up a running race for all animals to take part in. The first 12 to reach the finishing line were rewarded with a position in the lunar calendar.
The Chinese will celebrate The New Year Saturday February 10th 2024 through the Lantern Festival on Saturday February 24th 2024.
