The origin of the rabbit zodiac, why does the rabbit rank fourth among the 12 zodiac signs?

The rabbit is the fourth in the Chinese zodiac. It belongs to "Mao" with the twelve earthly dominance, so the "Mao" time among the twelve hours of the day from 5:00 am to 7:00 am, is also called "rabbit time".

Speaking of the rabbit as the zodiac, there is an interesting folk legend about the "rabbit and ox race".

According to legend, the rabbit and the ox are neighbors. They get along well and call each other brothers. Scalpers live by hard work, rabbits live by being clever and capable, and they all live well.

One day, the rabbit who was good at long-distance running showed off in front of the ox: "I am the long-distance running champion in the animal world, and no one can outrun me!" Innate qualities cannot be learned by learning. Besides, long-distance running makes you light and light, and with your thick body, I am afraid you will never be able to run fast."

The scalper's heart was half-cooled by the rabbit's words, but he was not convinced. From then on, the scalper began to practice long-distance running. With strong and indomitable strength, the scalper finally developed a pair of "iron feet". With a raised tail and four hooves like the wind, he never tires for days and nights.

On the day when the Jade Emperor arranges the zodiac, according to the rules, whoever arrives first will be the zodiac. The scalper and the rabbit made an agreement that the rooster would get up as soon as it crowed, and go straight to the Heavenly Palace to compete for the Chinese zodiac.

The rooster crowed for the first time, and when the scalper got up, the rabbit had already run away alone. The rabbit ran for a while, turned around, but there was no sign of any animal. The rabbit thought to himself, I got up the earliest today, and I ran the fastest when I woke up after I fell asleep. The first name of this zodiac must be me. So it fell asleep on the grass.

Although the ox was lagging behind, with his tenacious endurance and iron feet, he worked hard and ran to the Tiangong first while the rabbit was still sleeping soundly.

The rabbit was awakened by the sound of hurried footsteps. When he opened his eyes, it turned out that the tiger ran past like a gust of wind. Now the rabbit was in a hurry and chased after him. Unfortunately, he was a step too slow, and he still fell behind the tiger. Because there was an opportunistic little mouse squatting between the horns of the cow, the rabbit only ranked fourth, and the top three were the mouse, the cow, the tiger, and the rabbit.

In Chinese culture, the rabbit is a symbol of longevity, good luck, and prosperity. It is also said to be gentle, sensitive, and compassionate. People born in the Year of the Rabbit are said to be elegant, charming, and sensitive. They are also said to be hardworking and good at saving money.
