A long time ago, a mighty Emperor called upon all the animals of the kingdom; there was to be an epic race across the world as they new it. To the first twelve animals who crossed the raging river, he would bestow a great honor of naming one year of the new Lunar calendar for them. The race continued for days and finally they began to cross the finish line.

To this day we remember the triumph of these animals, honoring each of them, in order of their crossing. In this way, they have been immortalized in the Calendar of the Chinese Zodiac.
