What is your zodiac? Do you know? The Chinese Zodiac is based on a twelve-year cycle, each year in that cycle related to an animal sign. These signs are the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig. In Chinatown, these zodiacs are imbedded into the sidewalks. Come and find them and also learn about what it means in your zodiac.
