Chinese New Year
2032 - The year of the Rat

THE RAT
2032, 2020, 2008, 1996, 1984, 1972, 1960, 1948

11th of February 2032

The Rat is the first of all zodiac animals. According to a myth, the Jade Emperor said that the order would be determined by the order in which they arrived at his feast. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a lift on his back. Then, just as they got to the finish line, Rat jumped off his back and landed in front of Ox, thus becoming the first in the zodiac.

In Chinese culture, Rats were seen as a sign of wealth and excess. Because of their reproduction rate, couples also pray to the Rats for children. The Rat is yang and represents the beginning of a new day.

Rats are perfectionists. They communicate extremely well, are quick-witted, level headed and always alert. They choose their friends carefully and dote on children. Rats are great strategists and make good politicians, but most importantly, their intuition enables them to suss out the enemy quite early in the game. Rats are shrewd and know how to amass wealth. They’ll gladly spend on their loved ones while outsiders will find them miserly. Their adaptability and clever manoeuvring will see them thumbing their nose at even the tightest spot. But they can be quick-tempered and overly critical, making them edgy, nervous and a downright nag with things don’t go their way. They have an opportunistic trait that will see them wheeling and dealing in exploiting situations for self-benefit.

The date of the Chinese New Year is determined by the Chinese calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Chinese. Chinese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.
