The history of the Chinese lunar calendar goes back to ancient times where it made its first appearance during the east Han Dynasty. Ancient China's agricultural society was mainly illiterate, and so it was only natural that animals were chosen as shorthand symbols of the twelve earthly branches - an ancient system of dividing the day into twelve hours. It was only later that the signs developed into the horoscope which represents all men and women born in the same year, and is said to affect their personality, character and success. 1996 celebrated the year of the Rat.
