Year of the Rabbit

Posted By infinitehoroscopes on Entertainment - The gracious
and well-mannered Rabbit occupies the fourth sign of the Chinese Zodiac.  Twelve animals raced to cross the finish line
according to the Zodiac legend. During the race, the Rabbit experienced
hardship when he came across the river. He watched helplessly as the Rat, Ox
and Tiger swam across the river with ease. Fortunately, he saw a dumped raft
near the riverbank and thought he would use the raft to cross the river in
delight. Nevertheless, the spirited, careful Rabbit had not expected the sudden
wind rush that threatened to blow him into the water. Entirely determined to
cross the river, the Rabbit resiliently paddled away on the raft. However, what
seemed like a little hurricane came speeding towards him almost tipping the
raft over living the Rabbit hanging on for its dear life.

the dragon saw the Rabbit struggling as it was flying past at the moment. The
dragon immediately came down quickly to help the Rabbit forgetting its yearning
to win the race. The dragon blew a massive gust of wind towards the hurricane
from his nostrils, making sure the path of the Rabbit across the river was
clear and no other harm would come to him. Full of gratitude, the Rabbit looks
up and started paddling again. The dragon remained there the entire period to
ensure the hurricane or wind did not return. A moment later, the Rabbit made it
to the riverbank at the other end and hopped away to finish fourth place after
the tiger. This is the reason why the heart of the Rabbit holds a special place
for the dragon and vice versa up to today.
