The legend says that the Chinese emperor Jade held a Great Race with animals. The race would determine the first twelve zodiac signs. The first twelve animals to cross a river before the end of the race would be featured in the Zodiac.
The Tiger was one of the favourites to win the race, but the powerful river stream kept sending the big cat in another direction. That did not discourage the confident Tiger, which kept swimming and made it a shore after the Rat and the Ox. The Tiger is the third animal of the Chinese zodiac.
It is said that people born in the Year of the Tiger are determined, brave, and well-liked.
