This 2013 year of Snake is meant for steady progress and attention to detail. Focus and discipline will be necessary for you to achieve what you set out to create. The Snake is the sixth sign of the Chinese Zodiac, which consists of 12 Animal Signs. It is the enigmatic, intuitive, introspective, refined and collected of the Animals Signs. Ancient Chinese wisdom says a Snake in the house is a good omen because it means that your family will not starve.” (http://www.hanban.com/chinese-culture/chinese-zodiac/the-2013-year-snake.html)

Celebrating the new Snake year

First of all the Snake does not like noise and unnecessary movements. That is why it is better to celebrate the New Year 2013 on the tight leash of your family or friends. During this bright and good holiday you should relax and forget all worries and dark thoughts.

In your clothes you should prefer black and dark-blue colors. Green will also be good. Women will look perfect in smooth and tight-fitting clothes reminding snake’s patterned skin. Men might get some variety in their clothes using ties with snake-skin print. Bijou should include precious and semi-precious stones. Brilliants will be a special chic.

It is better to put a pine twig on the center of the table, it symbolizes longevity. And of course hook a talisman of the year – a small snake – on the Christmas tree: such attention will be pleasant to the Snake. And do not forget to have the most cherished wish during the last minutes of the previous year.

What should be on the Christmas table when celebrating the year of the Snake

The Snakes likes rabbits and bunnies that is why such dishes will be perfect. If you buy fresh rabbit do not forget to freeze it and then defrost, then the meat will be delicate and you can cook a Greek dish ‘stifado’. (http://astrogod.com/?q=2013-Year-Snake)
