The traditional Chinese almanac, also known as the Tong Sing or Huang Li, is a centuries-old repository of cultural information from household tips to general medical remedies. But it's the almanac's predictions of which days are auspicious or ominous for a wide range of activities that has made the annual publication a mainstay in Chinese homes. Authors Joanna C. Lee and Ken Smith translate and decode the almanac's predictions with daily listings for 2016, the Year of the Monkey.
