12 Chinese Zodiac Signs

12 Chinese Zodiac Signs

Each year of the Chinese Zodiac is represented by a different animal: the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig. 

The Chinese Zodiac is a traditional classification scheme based on the lunar calendar that assigns an animal and it's reputed attributes to each year in a repeating 12-year cycle. The Lunar New Year or Spring Festival, marks the transition from one animal to the next - 2022 is the year of the Tiger.
