2023 is the year of the Rabbit. Each Chinese New Year is represented by an animal, called a Chinese zodiac sign. There are 12 different zodiac animals in total. Similar to horoscopes, it is believed that people have similar personality traits to the animal or Chinese zodiac sign that they are born under.
