The Chinese Zodiac Explained

The Chinese New Year fell on February 16th this year, which means it's officially the Year Of The Dog and a good year for wearing purple and smelling the roses but a bad year for those born on a Dog year.

Over a quarter of the world's population celebrate the Lunar New Year and follow the Chinese Zodiac, but the rest don't understand why all those animal signs are such a big deal, which technologist ShaoLan Hseuh thinks is a shame.

So she gave an educational and fun TED talk explaining how the Chinese Zodiac works, including "how it's believed to influence your personality, career, marriage prospects and how you'll do in a given year."
