What's Your Sign? A Closer Look at the 12 Chinese Zodiac Signs

Cheers to the New Year!

The start of the new year always inspires us to reflect on the previous year while also looking forward to the new year and what we want to accomplish. As we set goals, commemorate milestones, and discover resolutions, one of the ways we strive to learn more about ourselves is through understanding our unique Chinese zodiac sign.  

The Chinese Zodiac is a classification scheme that assigns a specific sign based on the year you were born. Each sign is portrayed through specific animals and contains unique attributes that resonate with many. It’s not only a fun opportunity to learn more about Chinese culture and traditions but can also be a great way to learn something new about yourself or your loved ones 

“I travel to China often, and I always return inspired by their designs and culture. I keep a list of the Chinese animal zodiac signs in the top drawer of my dining room buffet. It makes for lively conversation whenever I’m entertaining to pull the chart out and discover where guests fall."   

- Laura Johnson, Founding Artist and CEO
