According to Chinese folklore, the zodiac order was originally decided by a race between the earth’s creatures. One of the most popular versions of this story asserts that the Jade emperor organized the competition, decrying that the first 12 creatures to cross the finish line would be rewarded by having a year in the zodiac named after them. The swiftness and endurance of the rabbit allowed it to finish in the top four competitors.
