2028 - The year of the Monkey

2016, 2004, 1992, 1980, 1968, 1956

Gregarious, intelligent and witty, monkeys are geniuses of the zodiac. Nothing is too hard for them and even if it is, they won't budge until they take a crack at it. They are inventive, adore challenges and have a deep respect and understanding of knowledge. Monkeys like being in the thick of things - the bigger the better!
They are also immensely flexible and can easily save their hides through clever flattery, manoeuvrings and strategising. Confident to a fault, the seldom give two hoots to the opinions of others. But monkeys are plotters and planners who exploit situations to their own advantage. hey also lose interest quickly if they are not the centre of attraction.
Monkeys are so self-absorbed and insecure, they don't trust easily and need to constantly better themselves in front of others. Petty matters somehow always become big issues with the monkey.

Therefore, monkey people need to remember to take a break to save their energy during their busy schedules. They want to experience the flavors of life. Usually, monkeys are very healthy creatures, partly due to their active lifestyles. If they do experience illness, it is usually of the nervous or circulatory system.

The date of the Vietnamese New Year is determined by the Vietnamese calendar, a lunar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Vietnamese. Vietnamese New Year starts on the first day of the new year containing a new moon (some sources even include New Year's Eve) and ends on the Lantern Festival fourteen days later. This occurs around the time of the full moon as each lunation is about 29.53 days in duration. In the Gregorian calendar, the Vietnamese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.
