2016 Lunar New Year Celebration

Year of the Monkey

1920, 1932, 1944, 1956, 1968, 1980, 1992, 2004, 2016, 2028

Occupying the 9th position on the Chinese Zodiac, the Monkey possesses such character traits as curiosity, mischievousness, and cleverness. Forever playful, Monkeys are the masters of practical jokes. Even though their intentions are always good, this desire to be a prankster has a tendency to create ill will and hurt feelings.

People born in the year of the Monkey are often inventors, entertainers and the creative geniuses behind anything ingenious, including mischief. They have natural quick-wittedness which enables them to understand what is happening and then make a right decision. They are also honest in their dealings and are very good at problem solving. They know how to listen closely and work out solutions at the same time. Monkeys prefer urban life to rural, and their favorite pastime is people-watching.
