Year of the Rooster in China!



The traditional Chinese calendar is a lunar one, and Spring Festival jumps between January and February depending on the year. This New Year is the year of the rooster, represented in the Chinese zodiac by the character 'ji' (鸡). Customarily, roosters are associated with curiosity, mischievousness and intelligence, but often tend to have a hard time exhibiting their clever and intellectual aspects.
Chinese mythology is not particularly full of stories about chickens, but one of the best known of which is entitled The Great Race (伟大比赛). This folktale explains why 12 animals are used in the Chinese zodiac and why they are ordered as they are today.
