Chinese New Year is determined by the Lunar calendar. It falls on different dates every year, between mid-January and mid-February. The Chinese Zodiac runs in 12-year cycles with an animal representing each year.
This year we are heading to the Year of the Monkey which officially starts on 8th February 2016 and lasts until 27th January 2017.
In Chinese astrology, the 12 animal zodiac signs each have unique characteristics. People born in the year of the monkey are said to be quick-witted, charming, lucky, adaptable, bright, versatile, lively and smart.
We’d like everyone a happy and prosperous Year of the Monkey!
