In Chinese culture, rats were seen as a sign of wealth and surplus.
In Chinese culture, the Rat is the first of all Zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order of the Zodiac would be decided by the order in which the animals came to his party. The Rat tricked Ox into giving him a ride, and once they arrived to the party he jumped off Ox, crossing the finish line first.
