Chinese New Year! 2013 is the Year of the Snake and begins on 10th February. The Snake is the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 Animal Signs. Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means that your family will not starve. People born in the Year of the Snake are reputed to be thoughtful and wise and to approach problems rationally and logically, seldom instinctively. They are sometimes egoistic and conceited. 2013 is the year of the Water Snake. Water Snakes are lucky with finances, they always seem to have money flowing their way. They are adventurous spirits and love to take risks. They are also very intelligent and often a wellspring of creative ideas. Water Snakes love to socialize and meet new friends.They are proud of their achievements, and also very thoughtful and considerate of others. The colour of the 2013 year of Snake is Black. The Black Snake will bring people unexpected changes, instability, and changeability. That is why it is important in the year of Snake to plan everything beforehand, and evaluate adequately before taking any actions. You need to be more careful and cautious than ever. Years of the Snake 1905, 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001
