It is said that the story behind the order of the animals is from a story called the “Great Race”. One of the most important gods in the Chinese Tradition – the Jade Emperor, had invited a group of animals to race, the animals he invited are the: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, goat, money, rooster, dog and lastly pig.

Despite only being one winner, the Jade Emperor decided to reward all their effort and named years after each animal in the order that they finished the race, and the order is as listed above.  With the rat finishing first and the pig last. It is said that the rat had rode on the Ox’s back when they crossed the river and the rat immediately rushed to the finish line to achieve first place, leaving the ox to settle for the second place.
