The Chinese Year

The Chinese Year or the Chinese zodiac (Sheng Xiao in the Chinese language) simulates the Western zodiac in that as the latter is divided into months, the former is divided into years. As there are twelve Western zodiac months there are twelve Chinese zodiac years. The Western zodiac follows the sun whereas the Chinese follow the moon. Each year is symbolized by a specific animal with its well-known attributes. It is widely practiced not only in China but also in other parts of East Asia, in particular Vietnam and Korea.
