According to the Chinese lunar calendar, the year of the Red Monkey will start on Feb. 4, 2016, though the Chinese new year is on Feb. 8, 2016. Why is the monkey red for 2016? Don’t ask me, I’m not an expert in Chinese zodiac… 🙂
But no offense to those who rely on Chinese zodiac for their fortune, I don’t see how a monkey, in particular a red monkey, for example, can influence a person’s life. Can a monkeying monkey monkey around and just monkey one’s future?
