    Years of the Chinese zodiac cross over into the next year, so this chart should have specific day/month dates of when they start. Example. It says 1995 is the pig, but the zodiac crosses over and continues into Feb 1996. I know because I’m a pig born in Feb 1996

    1. Rebecca Nicole Bishop Avatar

      Some people will be saying their Chinese zodiac is x or y because of their birth year. It all comes down the to the exact dates.
