As a Global Family, ORGANO™ is proud of its diversity – and today we honor and celebrate the day, as February 8th marks a celebration of culture, time, and a new season: The Chinese New Year! The Chinese New Year is also known as the Spring Festival, and it’s well known for its characterization of 12 Animals into their zodiac. One might think these 12 Animals in the Chinese Zodiac represent each month, but contrary to Western thinking, they each represent an entire year! As each year has its own significant animal that represents various traits, 2016 is the year of the Monkey. Let’s Explore!
Water, Fire, Wood, Earth, Gold & The Miraculous Chinese Mushroom: As the twelve animals in the Chinese Zodiac have their specific characteristics, there are five elements that each have their own year with an animal as well! The elements in the Chinese Zodiac are Water, Fire, Wood, Earth, and Gold. Each element has its attributing characteristic to the animal, and 2016 has arrived: A Celebration For the Year of the Fire Monkey! We now know what makes the year 2016 so special, but what makes ORGANO™ products so special? A little-known ingredient known as Ganoderma, an incredible little mushroom. The Chinese name for Ganoderma, Lingzhi, means “spiritual potency,” and there’s nothing common about this species – and you’ll find it infused in a wide variety of ORGANO™ Gourmet Coffee Blends and Single Serve Brew Cups!
Can You Feel the Heat? It is the Year of the Fire Monkey! Those who find themselves to belong to the Fire Monkey Zodiac, may find they have some of the same characteristics as well. The Monkey is a clever animal, and it is safe to assume that the Chinese have attributed the characteristic of cleverness in their zodiac to one of the most intelligent creatures in the animal kingdom. Characteristics of the Monkey Zodiac sign are amicable, inventive, confident, and passionate. Of course, this animal comes with some less than desirable attributes, or for humans – areas that need improving. The weaknesses for the Monkey Zodiac sign are arrogance, jealousness, superiority, and paranoia – none of which are desirable!
