The Chinese Lunar Calendar consists of a 12-year cycle that has a different animal assigned to each year on the calendar. Known as the Zodiac, this system assigns traits to each of the 12 animals and those born under the individual signs are said to share those traits and characteristics with the animals. For example, those born in the Year of the Tiger are believed to be strong and courageous.
