Yesterday, the monkey natives in Chinese astrology didn’t leave their homes, respecting the custom to protect against evil spirits crossing their thresholds.

From very early in the morning, firecrackers can be heard in all the neighbourhoods to ward off evil spirits.
The party’s started!
The new moon and new Chinese year is also known as the Spring Festival and is traditionally celebrated with the family.  It begins a two week period of festivities which end with the Festival of Lanterns.
With this year being under the red Fire Monkey, it’s time for new projects. The Monkey helps us with communication, persuasion, creativity and energy.  Great in all areas.

Happy New Year to everyone!
