Today (Monday 8 February 2016) is the first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year, and this is the Year of the Monkey.
If you are born in a Monkey year, Wikipedia says you are associated with
Intelligent, dignified, optimistic, romantic, sociable, quick-witted, confident, agile, motivator, curious, gregarious
Egotistical, vain, arrogant, selfish, deceptive, reckless, snobbish, stubborn, suspicious, manipulative, restless
(Vleeptron Dude is a Pig -- although we prefer the fearless mighty Boar. For anyone who was just born -- Hi Amy & Mike! -- that babe was born in the Year of the Goat.)
I hope you are near enough to a New Year's celebration to hear lots of little cheap firecrackers -- but please, not too close. China invented gunpowder, and so should have the right to celebrate their biggest holiday with their invention forever.
