Chinese New Year Mugs – What’s your Zodiac Animal?

There are 12 Zodiac Signs. Chinese zodiac animals have lucky meanings. It’s believed that people born in a given year have the personality of that year’s animal. Each zodiac animal’s year comes around every 12 years, and each year is associated with a zodiac animal. People born in a certain animal year are believed to have attributes of that animal, which could either help or hinder a relationship. With Valentines Day coming up, perhaps you could buy a Zodiac Mug for yourself and your significant other (let’s hope you have compatible traits)

Zodiac Mugs make perfect birthday gifts all year round.
