Am I A Fire Monkey Or...Not
source I am not a fan of any kind of astrology or fortune telling so it is no surprise that I was not aware that 2016 is the Year of the Monkey. When someone told me, I shrugged and promptly put it out of my mind. But with the upcoming Chinese New year celebrations and many social media posts about it, I learned that not only is 2016 a monkey year but it is that of a fire/red monkey , an element-sign combination that recurs every 60 years, the last time was in 1956, the year I was born. Yes, dear readers, I am turning 60 this year. And so I thought, hey, maybe it would be interesting to find out more about my Chinese Zodiac Monkey.
