Lunar New Year

This year we pay homage to the yáng to our yīn; the burly Ox - otherwise known as a bullock - in celebration of Lunar New Year. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said that the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived at his party. The Ox was about to be the first to arrive, but Rat tricked Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox. Thus, Ox became the second animal in line! Enjoy our edit (specially curated for those of you who like to get straight to the front of the queue!) to mark a long-standing, cherished occasion. Happy Lunar New Year!
