The Year of the Snake

The Chinese calendar follows the moon and divides the years into groups of twelve.  Each year is named for an animal.  People born in that year are believed to share different traits.

Rich in wisdom and charm, you are romantic and deep thinking and your intuition guides you strongly.  Avoid procrastination and your stingy attitude towards money.  Keep your sense of humor about life.  The Snake would be most content as a teacher, philosopher, writer, psychiatrist and fortune teller.

Ideas from Viewers:

Here is an idea for Chinese New Year from Jo.  Take a brown paper bag(large).   Cut holes for eyes then decorate it with either markers, crayons or construction paper.   Add streamers to the bottom and have a parade with your Chinese Snake.
