The annual Lunar New Year, which is often called "Chinese New Year," is coming up on Monday Feb. 8 this year!
The tradition isn't marked in all Asian countries, but the Lunar New Year, or "Chinese New Year" is a cultural celebration around the world, especially among Chinese communities.
The years revolve around the Chinese Zodiac and its 12 animal symbols; 2016 is the Year of the Monkey. If you're a Monkey, you're probably funny, smart and personable. You may be mischievous like a monkey, and love practical jokes. Monkeys are supremely sociable!
Happy New Year to all of CDBF's friends and family!
