Chinese New Year 2020 is the Year of the Rat and falls on January 25th.
The Rat is the first of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox, becoming first. – Chinese Zodiac
Your Chinese Zodiac is Rat if you are born in one of these years: 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008, 2020.
This activity pack is a new set of printables for Chinese New Year 2020 and will be updated as each new year arrives!
