Each year in Chinese calendar is represented by one of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac: Pig, Dog, Rooster, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Snake, Dragon, Rabbit, Rat, Ox and Tiger. Chinese believe that when you are born you will be a bit like the animal of your birth year.
For example I´m the Goat: "Elegant, artistic and good-natured. Inclined to worry too much. Peace-lovers who prefer to avoid disagreements. Others may put upon them, but they are stronger than they seem. Family is very important"
What do you think about this, kids?
