Lunar new year 2020: When is the Lunar new year, and why is 2020 the year of the rat? 1

The ancient legend dictates the Jade Emperor invited all of China’s animals to a feast, and the 12 who arrived first would be allowed in the zodiac.

The order in which they arrived determined their place, starting with the rat and ending with the pig.

Every 12 years each animal gets its turn at the head of the year, and they are assigned a new element every time, either wood, fire, each, metal or water.

In 2020, people will celebrate the year of the rat, the first to arrive at the Jade Emperor’s feast, imbued with the element of metal.
