Prosperity in the Year of the Dragon
Defining the 12-year repeating cycles of the zodiac, each lunar year is named after an animal in the order of the Great Race.
The legend unfolds as the Jade Emperor, celebrating his birthday, decides to hold a great race. Calling for all the animals to participate, the first 12 to finish would be given a place within the calendar, with each year being named after the animals in the order in which they finished.
As the most revered animal, everyone thought the strong and magnificient Dragon would be victorious in winning the top prize with honor. On the way to the race, the Dragon encountered a village encountered a village suffering from drought. The Dragon took pity on them and stopped to give them rain, causing the Dragon to be late to the race. This left the Dragon in fifth place in the zodiac calendar.

The Lunar New Year is on February 10, 2024, and runs until February 20, 2024.
