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.

The date of the Chinese New Year is determined by the Chinese calendar, a lunisolar calendar. The same calendar is used in countries that have adopted the Confucian and Buddhism tradition and in many cultures influenced by the Chinese. Chinese 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 Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year, on a date between January 21 and February 21.

Some web sites say the year 2017 is the 4717th Chinese year. If you cannot find the explanation, here is a possible answer for you: The Yellow King's inauguration was held in the spring of 2697 B.C. But the day that was used as the first day of the year was the winter solstice, which was around December 23rd, 2698 B.C. Today's January 1st meant nothing to the Yellow King. If we count that extra eight days in 2698 B.C., then year 2014 is the 4714th Chinese year
