Collector's mug! Elegant one of a kind Year of the Fire Monkey 2016 Mug was a part of the Fire Monkey Collection especially designed to celebrate the Year of the Monkey. This beautiful mug was one of the very first mugs designed by Jimmo.
In the Chinese calendar, year 2016 is a Year of the Fire Monkey. It began on February 8, 2016 and ended on January 27, 2017.
The Monkey is one of the twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac. According to a story told by the Chinese Buddhists, monkey was the ninth animal that arrived to a feast given by the Buddha.
The Chinese astrologers assign zodiac signs to the Five Elements: metal, water, wood, fire and earth. The zodiac sign returns every twelve years, but a particular combination of the zodiac sign and the element occurs only every sixty years. This means that the next Fire Monkey will be celebrated in 2076!
