The year of the wooden sheep

A very feminine looking goat
We celebrate chinese new year in Feb this year. The shopping malls have put them the CNY decorations in stages. This is BIG's take on the year of the goat. ( Or wooden sheep, depending on which website you choose to follow)

Just as a recap ( for me, for me) there are 12 chinese zodiac signs. And they are;rat, cow, tiger, rabbit,dragon, snake, horse,sheep, monkey, chicken, dog and pig. What animal you are, depends on the year you were born. But here's the catch, when is the start of the chinese new year? All this while I thought it starts on the first say of CNY every year. Beep! Wrong, the Chinese astrological year starts on the first day of the tiger month, which is around the Feb 4th every year.( Which is the start of Spring) According to mr Internet, the easiest way to find out what animal you are, is to consult the chinese astrological chart, all you need is the year and time you were born. There!! You ( and I ) have learnt something new today.
