ARE YOU A RAT?
If you were born in 1912, 1924, 1636, 1948, 1960, 1984, 1996 or 2008, you are a RAT.
The first sign of the Chinese zodiac is the sign of the rat because rats are clever, popular and charming. It is said that the Jade Emperor wanted to celebrate his birthday by holding a race for his favorite animals. The first 12 animals to finish the race will become the symbols of the lunar calendar. The rat was clever and jumped on the back of an ox. Once they crossed the river, the rat quickly jumped off and raced to the finish line, thus coming first in the race. The other 11 animals are the ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, roster, dog and pig.
