Abraham Lincoln's Birthday Also Chinese New Year
2021: The Year of the Ox. The Ox is the second of the Chinese zodiac animals. According to myth, the Jade Emperor decreed that the order reflected the order in which they arrived at his party. The Ox was about to be the first, but Rat tricked Ox into giving him a ride. Just as they arrived, Rat jumped down and landed first.
Oxen are the hard workers behind the scenes: intelligent, reliable, but never demanding praise. Will you be an ox this year?
