The Chinese Lunar Calendar is a part of Chinese culture and mythology that has been central to life in China for thousands of years. Historical tales state that the 12 animals now found in the Chinese Lunar Calendar were assigned positions by the Jade Emperor based on the results of the Great Race.
After the Jade Emperor called a meeting of the world’s animals, various species engaged in a Great Race to meet the Emperor. The 12 that arrived were assigned a position on the Zodiac based on their arrival, with the mouse being first and the pig last. The tiger is third in the 12-year cycle and represents courage and strength.
