(01.25.20 Saturday) Kung hei fat choi!!! It’s the year of the rat! The Chinese zodiacs’ order was chosen by the Jade Emperor through a race. Many people wonder how the tiny Rat beat the others. Well, it’s because he’s a cunning fellow.
Cat and Rat were supposed to go together. But Cat overslept because Rat had slipped something into his tea the night before.
Then on the way, Rat ran into Ox and they struck up a deal: Ox would carry Rat while Rat would sing for him. With Rat’s encouraging singing, they quickly made it to the finish line. But just as they were crossing over, Rat jumped down and landed in front of Ox, in first place.
Tiger and Rabbit arrived soon after. Dragon could’ve been earlier, but he took a detour to save a village from a flood. Snake arrived at the same time, but he was too small to be seen at first. Horse and Goat traveled together, but Horse was a bit faster.
Monkey, Rooster and Dog arrived together after helping a god in another country. Pig’s home was destroyed by a wolf and he had to rebuild it before joining the race. #chinesenewyear #kungheifatchoi
