? the chinese animal signs are a 12-year cycle[周期] used for dating the years. they represent a cyclical concept[观念] of time. the chinese lunar calendar[阴 历] is based on the cycles of the moon, and is constructed[创立] in a different fashion than the western solar calendar[阳历]. the repeating cycle of the twelve animal signs is as follows: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig. therefore, every twelve years the same animal name would reappear. according to chinese legend, the twelve animals quarreled one day about who was to head the cycle of years. the gods were asked to decide and they held a contest ?whoever was to reach the opposite bank of the river first, would be first on the calendar, and the rest of the animals would receive their positions according to their finishing order. all the twelve animals gathered at the river bank and jumped in. unknown to the ox, the rat had jumped upon his back. as the ox was about to jump ashore[上岸], the rat jumped off the ox’s back and won the race. the pig, who was very lazy, ended up last. that is why the rat is the first year of the animal cycle, the ox second, and the pig last. the animal signs also serve a useful social function for finding out people’s ages. instead of asking directly how old a person is, people often ask what is his or her animal sign. more often though, people ask for animal signs not to compute[计算] a person’s exact numerical age, but to simply know who is older among friends and acquaintances[熟人].
? More than 30,000 years ago, Chinese ancestors invented the 10 Tian Gan(or heavenly stems)and 12 Di Zhi(or 12 earthly branches for chronological purpose. Later,people used 12 animals to symbolize the 12 earthly branches in order to make things easier to memorize and the animals in order are the mouse, ox, tiger, rabbit,dragon,snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster,dog and pig. You might found out that many Chinese people strongly believe that the time of a person's birth is primary factor in determining that person's characteristics. According to one legend, Buddha invited all the animals to his kingdom, but unfortunately, only a total of 12 turned up, the mouse was naturally the first, followed by the ox, then tiger, the rabbit and so on. Out of gratitude, Buddha decided to name the year after each of the animals in their order of arrival. It is essential in China that every person knows which animal sign he is born under and most of Chinese truly believe that the signs reveal the hidden secrets of a person's character.
? 3万多年前,中国的祖先发明了10天干和12地支 (按时间顺序排列)。后来,人们为了方便记忆, 用12种动物代表12地支,动物的排序为:子鼠、 丑牛、寅虎、卯兔、辰龙、巳蛇、午马、未羊、 申猴、酉鸡、戌狗、亥猪等。 你可能会发现中 国人特别相信出生年月是决定性格特征的主要因 素。根据传说,佛曾邀请所有动物来他的国土上 聚会,但遗憾的是,只有12个动物来了,老鼠自 然是第一位,接下来是牛、然后是虎,后来是兔 子等等。出于感激,佛决定按动物们到的先后次 序命名年份。在中国每个人都知道自己的属相是 最基本的事,而且大多数的中国人确信属相可以 揭示人的性格秘密。
