Year of the Monkey

DLTK's Chinese New Year Activities
The Year of the Monkey

The Chinese calendar follows the moon and divides the years into groups of twelve.  Each year is named for an animal.  People born in that year are believed to share different traits.

The Year of the Monkey falls on February 8, 2016 to January 27, 2017

You are very intelligent and have a very clever wit.  Because of your extraordinary nature and magnetic personality you are always well-liked.  The Monkey, however, must guard against being an opportunist and distrustful of other people.  Your sign promises success in any field you try.
