Tai - Chinese New Year explanation

How the 12 Animals represented by China, got its ,year. A long time ago the Jade emperor chose 12 Animals to compete in a race.  

The Race began with the twelve Zodiac animals, with the rat taking ahead among all 12 animals , until there was a river. The rat couldn’t make it over the river so the rat waited until he saw the ox. The Rat jumped on the ox’s head while the ox was diving through the river. Until the moment, the rat jumped off the ox’s head and jumped through the finish line.

As the race finished by a win from the rat, the 12 zodiac Animals began as the zodiac was ordered first to last, for an example the rat was the first so the rat is the first to be celebrated for Chinese New Year, the the ox came 2nd so the ox

is celebrated 2nd than for other Animals goes for the same but in order like 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th 10th 11th 12th.

Now people all around the world celebrate Chinese New Year. People from different countries to come and celebrate Chinese New Year. That's the legend of the 12 zodiac animals.

The lantern festival is the last festival for Chinese new year. The Lantern Festival is a celebration celebrated by Chinese people or any culture people but is traditional celebrated by Chinese. The lantern festival is to  have prayers to who had passed away and is for well being and good luck.

For Chinese New Year we have been writing  about an explanation. Our explanation was about the 12 zodiac animals and how Chinese New Year first started. I have worked with Joseph to complete this task, The hard thing we had to do was figure out which animals came first to twelfth. I really enjoyed learning about the Chinese New Year celebration and hope to learn more late on the year.
