Chinese Birth Year Signs
Have you ever wondered what your Chinese birth year sign is? Well first of all, what are these signs? You’ve probably seen these signs, also known as Chinese zodiac or astrology signs, when you go to a Chinese restaurant. A printed sheet of paper, used as a place mat, shows twelve animals and has a brief explanation of each. You are assigned an animal depending on which year you were born in. This is about the extent most of us look into these signs. Oh man, was I surprised when I looked into my own sign a little more…
My zodiac sign is the Tiger. I’m not convinced these signs are a real predictor, but I was blown away when I read a complete description of those born in the year of the tiger! Each sign comes with brief summaries in personality, health, career, relationships and some others depending on the source. It was almost spot-on for me in every area it described! How I am with people, at work, almost everything it said seemed to be describing me personally.
It’s fun to learn more about the culture of the language you are learning, but whether or not you’re learning Chinese, you should definitely check out your Chinese birth year sign. Is yours as accurate as mine? Let me know in the comment section!
