Chinese zodiac by jessica orozco and erika martin

The Chinese Zodiac is based on the Chinese calendar. There is a legend that the zodiac animals were chosen by the Jade Emperor of Heaven. He invited all animals to participate in a race. The first twelve would have a year in the Chinese calendar named after them.

Since then, people have looked at the zodiac to understand their personalities.

Buddha

By Marianne McCloskey

Buddha was a spiritual teacher who founded the religion known today as “Buddhism”. His exact birth date is unknown, though his birth date is usually told as being somewhere between 563- 411 B.C.

Buddha is thought to have born in Lumbini, which is in modern-day Nepal and raised in the small kingdom of Kapilavastu. According to traditional biographies, Buddha’s father was King Suddhodana.

Buddha is most often described as a god, though he is also described a god-like, the avatar for a god, or the reincarnation of a man named “Lao Tzu”.
