The rat has also been celebrated in 1912, 1924, 1936, 1948, 1960, 1972, 1984, 1996, 2008. The Rat is the first of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a ride. Then, just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox, becoming first.

Rats are clever, quick thinkers; successful, but content with living a quiet and peaceful life. Optimistic and energetic, people born in the Rat year are likable by all. They are sensitive to other’s emotions but are stubborn with your opinion. Their personality is kind, but due to weak communication skills, their words may seem impolite and rude.

On the financial side, they like saving and can be stingy. However, their love for hoarding will sometimes cause them to waste money on unnecessary things. For the METAL Rat, These Rats tend to be reliable and live a stable life. They may hold some power and are able to turn unlucky events into fortune.

The Rat has the first position in the zodiac and for this reason, 2020 is considered a year of new beginnings and renewals. The Rat is a representation of diligence, kindness, and generosity and 2020 will bring new opportunities for finding true love and earning more money. 2020 is going to be successful! Although this holiday is traditionally dominated by red, during the Metal Rat Year, the lucky colors for 2020 that will bring good fortune and wellness are white and blue.
