According to legend, many years ago Buddha summoned all the animals to a meeting in which he would designate the first
12 animals arriving, to be signs of a year respectively. On the night before the departure, cat notified his pal, rat, and
they agreed that the one waking up first the next morning must awake the other so they can depart for the meeting together.
However, rat broke his promise and arrived for the meeting alone. Then, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey,
rooster, dog and pig arrived one after the other. When cat woke up and hurried there, the meeting was over. It is said that
is the reason why the cat kills rats.

New Year usually falls between mid January and early February.
