Can you post a list of the years and animals?  I found a list a few years ago but I understood that the animals are different now.  For instance my daughter was a rabbit, born in 1974 but the post below says 1974 is one of the tigers.  Now I'm confused.

Interesting, I never heard of a "water tiger."  

 

We don't celebrate but happy holiday to all who do.

Happy New Year to all who celebrate!  Smiley Happy

 

 

I didn't know this - The celebration starts on February 1 and will then culminate with the Lantern Festival on February 15.

 

 

I love seeing the lanterns and the red and the ceremony - the "old" cultural China.
