There is a different animal representing each one of the 12 years on the Chinese Lunar Calendar. The cycle repeats itself every 12 years with the Year of the Rat representing the first of the 12 animals in the cycle. Other animals in the cycle include the ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat monkey, rooster, dog, and pig.
Rats are believed to be quick-witted, resourceful, versatile, and kind. For those born under the sign of the rat, Chinese cultural beliefs suggest that those individuals share many of these same personality traits. The rat was certainly resourceful in getting itself to the meeting with the Jade Emperor first by hitching a ride on the ox to cross the raging river and jump off just before the finish line to cross it first.
