Year of the Rabbit – 4th Chinese Zodiac Animal

The Year of the Rabbit is forth in the 12-year cycle of animal years of the Chinese zodiac. Rabbit years are …1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999, 2011, 2023… If you were born in one of the years, then you are a Rabbit.

A myth says that the Jade Emperor held a competition and said the order of the 12-cycle animal signs would be decided by the order in which the zodiac animals arrived at his palace. Ox came first but Rat climbed up its head and landed ahead of Ox, Tiger and Rabbit following. So the top 4 became Rat, Ox, Tiger, and Rabbit.
