Isle of Man 2016
Year of the Monkey

ISSUE DATE: 20 January 2016
STAMP THEME: Year of the Monkey

This latest in a series of initiatives by the IOM Post Office to link the Isle of Man to China in the beautifully presented "Year of the Monkey" stamps, is yet another great way of helping put the Isle of Man on the map while helping build awareness of our two rich cultures.

People born in a year of the Monkey are witty, intelligent, and have a magnetic personality. Personality traits, like mischievousness, curiosity and cleverness make them very naughty.

Monkeys are masters of practical jokes, because they like playing most of the time. Though they don't have any bad intentions, their pranks sometimes hurt the feelings of others.

Those born in a year of the Monkey are fast learners and crafty opportunists. They have many interests and need partners who are capable of stimulating them. While some like the eccentric nature of Monkeys, some don't trust their sly, restless and inquisitive nature.
