The Chinese Lunar Calendar has been around for many generations. In fact, the earliest use dated back to the Shang Dynasty, which was around the late second millennium B.C. The calendar was based on cycles of the moon which causes the Chinese New year to fall on a different day each year between late January and early February. Each year, the Chinese calendar has a different animal sign according to which one was born and that sign repeats every 12 years.

These 12 zodiac signs influenced the Chinese culture and horoscopes, similar to how the constellation influenced Western horoscopes. The 12 zodiac animals are either related to ancient Chinese people’s daily lives or have lucky meanings. The Ox, Horse, Goat, Rooster, Pig and Dog are the main domestic animals raised by Chinese people and the other six are all loved by the Chinese which is why they are chosen. The order is as follows: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig.

 

Why they are in that order you say? The Chinese zodiacs are in a fixed order according to the Chinese Yin and Yang theory and perceived attributes. The Yin and Yang of the animals is defined based on the odd or even number of their claws, toes or hooves. The animals are then arranged in an alternating Yin-Yang sequence. As the old saying goes, “a thing is valued in proportion to its rarity”, so the Rat ranks first of the 12 zodiac animals, because it has five toes on its back legs and four toes on its front legs. It combines attributes of odd and even.

 

To celebrate the Lunar New Year we have brought you this event! In this event you are going to draw yourself or your OC in a Lunar Themed outfit. If you don't want to draw your OC or yourself, you can use Pablob instead! The goal here is to include the zodiac from your birth year in any way, shape or form. May it be the animal itself or just elements of it. We hope to see many entries and hope you guys will have a fun time participating in this event. Have a good Lunar New Year and hopefully this event makes the celebration even better. May the year of the Dog be a good one!

Rat: 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008 and 2020

@StarBooty, the event is kinda about drawing your own character/yourself and including your own zodiac in there. It's gonna be kinda hard with 2 people collabbing on one OC and one zodiac so I'd have to say no. :( 

 

btw thanks KIM I was just about to type it out :thumbsup:
