Our dearest friends in China today welcome the year of 2016! The New Year, also known as the Spring Festival, is marked by the lunisolar Chinese calendar, so the date changes from year to year. The festivities usually start the day before the New Year and continue until the Lantern Festival, the 15th day of the new year. Chinese New Year 2016 will be a year of the Monkey. "Monkeys" are witty, intelligent and have a magnetic personality! We wish you a happy, creative and prosperous 2016!!!
