Monkey SymbolGong Xi Fa Cai! Happy Year of the Monkey!

Wikipedia has a very nice article about Chinese New Year, so does the Telegraph from London, England. Google has a nice brief description, along with a doodle for the Year of the Monkey. Check these out and let me know what you think in Comments below.

My favorite computer game, Guild Wars 2, which is a massive multi-player online role-playing game (MMORPG), celebrates the Lunar New Year in its own way. GW2 Lunar New Year festivities started January 26th and end February 9th, the day after the Chinese Lunar New Year begins for 2016.


One of my Human characters is wearing a costume reminiscent of ancient Chinese traditional garb. She is also sporting a backpack celebrating the Year of the Monkey. I posed her beside an archway with the Year of the Monkey statue inside.
