Happy New Year (again)!
2013 is the Year of the Snake!
According to Chinese astrology, the year 2013
beginning on February 10, 2013 and extending to January 30, 2014
in the western calendar, is the Year of the Water Snake.
The Chinese zodiac comprises 12 animal signs ~ the snake sign
is the sixth among them. The astrology principles followed
by the Chinese state that it is very auspicious to have
someone in the house with the snake sign. Snake is a good omen;
it is symbolic of the fact that nobody in the house will ever
go without food. Moreover, if a person is born in
the year of the snake, she not only brings luck to the house,
but also enjoys luck herself!
