Friday the 16th of February marks the first day of the Chinese New Year. That got us to thinking about Chinese Zodiacs.
“Legend has it that one day the gods ordered that animals be designated as signs of each year and the twelve that arrived first were selected...
The animal year when a person was born is called his or her Ben Ming Nian or Zodiac Year of Birth. The distinctive zodiacal way of calculating years, based upon the lunar calendar, decides that every once in every twelve-year cycle people will meet their birth signs.
Although it sounds a bit superstitious, Chinese people take their year of birth seriously.” ~ via Travel Chanel Guide
