Gong Xi Fa Cai! If you've already blown your new year's resolutions, get a fresh start with the lunar calendar and the 2016 Chinese New Year, which begins today, Monday, February 8th, and ends on January 27th, 2017. Traditionally, every year is assigned an animal in the Chinese Zodiac, and 2016 has been declared the Year of the Monkey, a clever, mischievous critter, which bodes well for a year of risk-taking. Here in Seattle, you can join the sixth annual Lunar New Year Celebration this Saturday, February 13th at Hing Hay Park in the International District, and here on the KEXP Blog, you can celebrate with this roundup of Monkey songs. Here's wishing you and yours a year of health and prosperity!
