the Chinese animal zodiac is a rotating cycle of 12 year, for every 12 years a certain year of animal recurs. For example, if a person was born in the year of 1990, which was the year of the horse, then his animal sign is horse. In every 12 years, so to say when this person is 12, 24, 48, 60, 72 and 84 years old, the year of horse recurs, which is this person’s year of birth, or Ben Ming Nian.

According to Chinese ancient superstition, in one’s year of birth, he will offend “Tai Sui”, the god of age in Chinese mythology, and will have bad luck during that year. The best way to avoid bad luck during this year is wearing something red given by other people, such as socks, ribbon, clothes, underwear, waistband or bracelet.
