About the Chinese Zodiac:
According to traditional Chinese legend, ages ago Buddha summoned all of the animals and honored those who came by naming a year for them. Each animal in turn gave its characteristics to people born in its year. The Chinese Zodiac is based on a twelve year cycle. Each year is represented by an animal: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, monkey, rooster, dog, and boar (pig).
