This is 2021, the Year of the Ox. As the story goes the Rat and the Ox were racing the other animals when the Rat asked her big strong friend if she could hitch a ride, to which the kind Ox agreed. When they got to the end of the race the Rat jumped down and so she got there first. That was last year.
As this year the calendar animal is a gentle hard working beast, I hope it would be a better year all round and we finally get over the pandemic. Happy New Year everybody!
A friend called it a Foldilope.
