In the Chinese lunar calendar, each year is associated with a zodiac animal on a 12-year cycle. These animals are associated with specific characteristics that are thought to be prominent in people born in that year.
Additionally, one of the five elements – wood, fire, earth, metal and water – is also assigned each year and is believed to have a big impact on the Chinese zodiac animals. In 2016, the element is fire.
