The NYC Chinese Community has welcomed in the Year of the Snake.
With Lion Dances, firecrackers (see in video) and family gatherings the Chinese New Year has been loudly celebrated.
What can be expected in the Year of the Snake? Well snakes are tricky and dangerous beasts, not to be treated lightly.
But Chinese astrologers think that if caution is exercised 2013 could be a good ‘Snake’ year.
Children born in this year will be blessed with self motivation and agility of all kinds.
For the rest of us there will be great opportunities but guard against complacency and indifference.
