Year of the Dragon: Symbol of power

Each year Chinese New Year falls on a different date, for 2012 it will fall on 23rd January. Legend has it, how the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac came to be. One such legend tells how all 12 animals wanted to be the leader. So the only way to settle this was to race across the river, with the first to reach the other side becoming leader. They jumped in and swam as fast as they could towards the other side. Each year to be named after each animal in the order in which they finished: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, chicken, dog and pig. The ox would have been first but the cunning rat sat on his back and jumped off onto the opposite bank just before they arrived and therefore won the race.  The purpose of the Chinese horoscope is to give  information about a person’s character and talents.
