The story goes: An ancient emperor invited all the animals to a legendary race across the river. The first 12 animals to complete the race would have a permanent place in the calendar as a prize. Every animal represents one year of the 12-year cycle based on the Chinese zodiac. The year the person is born determines their animal sign.
You’ve likely heard reference to someone born in the “Year of the Rabbit” or “Year of the Dog”. Each animal is known to have certain traits and characteristics that describe the person’s personality and destiny. Listed below are the traits of the 12 Little Wonders.
