Vietnamese Year of the Goat

Legend has it

The goat being a slow swimmer decided to make a pact with the monkey and the rooster to work together to cross the river. After being informed by the rooster about a raft floating nearby in the marshy grasslands, the goat cut through the weeds and grass with its sharp teeth and helped the monkey pull the raft out of the river. Talk about team work! All three of the animals rode the raft across the river to the finish line.
