Chinese Zodiacs 生肖

The twelve zodiac signs, also known as Shengxiao or Shuxiang, are twelve animals that match the year of birth. Each zodiac has rich legends, and becomes an image in culture philosophy, such as zodiac signs in marriage, temple prayers, natal year, etc. In modern times, more people regard the Chinese zodiac as a mascot for the Spring Festival and a symbol of entertainment and cultural activities.

十二生肖,又叫属相,是代表中国人出生年份的十二种动物。每一种生肖都有丰富的传说,并成为民间文化中的形象哲学,如婚配上的属相、庙会祈祷、本命年等。在现代社会,更多人把生肖作为春节的吉祥物,成为娱乐文化活动的象征。
