Chinese New Year 2016 • Fire Monkey
The year of the monkey in 2016 brings in possibly one of the most famous animals for Chinese. Sun Wukong might be considered one of China's "superheroes" from ancient legends. Filled with so many powers one tends to lose track, many legends have been written surrounding this character. Last year it was the year of the fire monkey! Like Sun Wukong, he's a sneaky guy, always trying to steal peaches. Not sure why, but the fire likely makes them nice and roasty before he eats them.
