2020, the year of the rat, is upon us! While typically portrayed as a pest in America, in Chinese culture, the rat is seen as a sign of intelligence, wealth, and fertility. It is said that when determining the order of the zodiac, the rat tricked the ox into carrying it, jumping off the ox at the end of the procession to become the first animal of the Chinese zodiac. The next year of the rat will be 2032.
