Leading shopping centers, retailers, shopping districts and outlets throughout the USA are welcoming China Lunar New Year with special events and gifts with purchase. The Year of the Monkey began on February 8, 2016 and promises good fortune and playful fun! 

“The year of the Monkey is ideal for a quantum leap in your life! Now is the time to shake things up, create change, and innovate a new path. Join Monkey's enthusiast energy when risks are rewarded and anything can happen. Even the most ambitious plans can succeed. There will be more than enough action and opportunity to keep you busy. In Monkey year, it's fine to just make it up as you go along. Just don't be gullible and trust the wrong people, or wily Monkey will take all the peanuts and leave you only shells,” per astrologer Susan Levitt.
