Google Monkeys Logo Is For The Lunar New Year

Today on is a special Google logo, aka Doodle, for the Lunar New Year. The Lunar New Year is also known as the Chinese New Year, celebrated in countries like China, Korea, Mongolia, and Vietnam.

2016 is the year of the Fire Monkey, which is the 9th in the 12 year cycle of the zodiac. The monkey sign represents quick-wittedness and smarts, and people born under it are thought to be adaptable and flexible in their thinking, as Google explained, which is why they have the Monkey's as the Doodle.

Google's Doodler Alyssa Winans illustrated a family of monkeys in the traditional fiery red which matches the lucky envelopes families give and receive on Lunar New Year - and the explosions of the firecrackers. No, the Doodle is not animated.
