26 January, 2013
Celebrated by over a billion and a half people around the world, the Year of the Snake marks the halfway point through the 12 Chinese astrological signs. The symbolic animal is believed to impart certain characteristics on those born during that year, and people born during previous snake years (like 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989 and 2001 — but bearing in mind lunar calendar dates) can expect good fortune during 2013.
The perfect gift to wish people "Gung hay fat choy," or "Sun leen fai lok", two Cantonese phrases hoping for prosperity for the new year.
