The Chinese sure have a way of celebrating their New Year and it is a celebration that dwells in the festivity all throughout the 12 months and throughout the 12 signs of the Chinese zodiac represented by animals. These 12 signs of the zodiac are based on a 12 year cycle, each of the years being named after an animal. According to Chinese belief, a person born in a particular year will have the characteristics and traits of the particular animal associated with that year.
The 12 animal signs according to the Chinese lunar calendar in the Chinese zodiac are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. Unlike the Western Gregorian calendar which designate the New Year as beginning on January the 1st, the Chinese New Year usually begins a few weeks preceding the Gregorian New Year. The Chinese have a real knack when it comes to fortune and good luck and who knows, this game may be in your stride for a real start to fortune.
