Chinese New Year will usually be a very manic time leading up to the celebrations and festivities which is why we have made this comprehensive Chinese New Year Checklist for 2016, the year of the Yang Fire Monkey (Bing Shen). Chinese New Year brings so many jobs and tasks that need doing and every year around the home and office that I go through the home and office that I tend to forget things that need doing which is why I originally created a checklist to tick off as I go through all of the tedious tasks and last year, I decided to share it on the website for others to add or change how they like and the feedback has been amazing and I am so thankful for all of your kind words.

The list below is the same list that I go through every year during Chinese New Year and this year, I have tailored it to the year of the Monkey and included where to place the 2016 Annual Cures and Enhancers and colour suggestions for the year which will hopefully make it a bit easier when going through everything before the start of the year of the Monkey.
