THE CHINESE NEW YEAR

ANIMALS OF THE CHINESE HOROSCOPE
In the Chinese tradition, twelve different animals are cyclically assigned to different years. The legend tells that these animals (mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog and pig) were chosen because they responded to the call of Buddha. Each of these animals have a particular characteristic that also significantly influence the traits of people born under their zodiac sign.
