Chinese New Year 2010 • Metal Tiger
Why does the Chinese calendar have these 12 specific animals in that order? It's all due to a story about an emperor needing help telling time. He organised a race across a river, with the first to get to the Heavenly gate being able to join the calendar. The order of animals in the years reveals who won and in what order. In the year 2010, we enjoyed the Metal Tiger. Her ferocious roar would have had a wonderful base sound considering her metallic element. Just don't get any sand in her gears.
