Reputedly the oldest chronological record in history, the ancient Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back before 2,600BC. Based on the appearance of the new moon, it associates a different animal with each year in the 12year lunar cycle.

Traditionally,the first year of the lunar cycle is ruled by the mouse. According to legend, the order of the animals in Chinese astrology was determined by their race across a river. Each animal is believed to influence the personality of the people born under its rule.
