Vietnamese Year of the Monkey

Legend has it

The monkey knew being a land animal it definitely not make it across the ranging river alive so it made a pact with the rooster and the goat to cross together. The rooster informed the monkey about a raft near by and it used it’s hands to pull the raft out of the marshy weeds and grass lands. The goat helped by clipping the weeds and all three of the animals rode the raft across the river to the finish line.
