Year of the Rat

Happy New Year! It’s the Year of the Rat and the beginning of the whole round of animals as the rat is the first of all the lunar animals. “According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox, becoming first.” Read more HERE.

For my kids, I like to create a bookmark that they can use for the year and include it in the envelop with the money. It’s a little something extra I enjoy especially if I see them use the bookmark. 😉
