So today we celebrate the lunar New Year and the arrival of the Year of the Monkey. But what do we know about those born in the Year of the Monkey?

Curious, mischievous and clever, the Monkey is forever playful and they are masters of practical jokes.

Although they are inherently intellectual and creative, Monkeys at times have trouble exhibiting these qualities. When that happens, they appear to others to be confused. But nothing could be further from the truth as Monkeys thrive on being challenged.

Monkeys prefer urban life to rural, and their favorite pastime is people-watching.
