Chinese Zodiac
The Chinese calendar is the oldest calendar and was created in 2600 BC.
The calendar goes in 12 year cycles that are named after animals in the Chinese
Zodiac. The story is Lord Budha summoned all the animals, and only 12 came. In
honor, he named the years after the 12 animals. The order is based on the order
of when the animals arrived. Rat came first by hopping on the back of the Ox
who took him across the river, and then jumping off ahead of him.
Now, let’s take a look at the Chinese zodiac.
