    February 10th, 2013 ............... Happy Chinese New Year! [​IMG] The Year of the Snake [​IMG]   Chinese New Year is the longest and most important celebration in the Chinese calendar. The Chinese year 4711 begins on Feb. 10, 2013. Chinese months are reckoned by the lunar calendar, with each month beginning on the darkest day. New Year festivities traditionally start on the first day of the month and continue until the fifteenth, when the moon is brightest. In China, people may take weeks of holiday from work to prepare for and celebrate the New Year.   Each year of the Chinese lunar calendar is represented by one of 12 animal symbols of the Chinese zodiac: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, and Boar. For 2013, it's the Snake's turn. The Snake is sometimes called a junior dragonbecause of its dragon-like appearance. According to Chinese astrology, people born on the year of the Snake are said to be keen and determined. They're said to know how to maneuver themselves toward their own destinies and destinations. They are said to be sophisticated and calm and not outwardly emotional, but they might have a touch of paranoia at times. China's late Chairman Mao Zedong was born in the year of the Snake.   Animal Personality Traits Rat: quick-witted, smart, charming, and persuasiveOx: patient, kind, stubborn, and conservativeTiger: authoritative, emotional, courageous, and intenseRabbit: popular, compassionate, and sincereDragon: energetic, fearless, warm-hearted, and charismaticSnake: charming, gregarious, introverted, generous, and smartHorse: energetic, independent, impatient, and enjoy travelingSheep: mild-mannered, shy, kind, and peace-lovingMonkey: fun, energetic, and activeRooster: independent, practical, hard-working, and observantDog: patient, diligent, generous, faithful, and kindPig: loving, tolerant, honest, and appreciative of luxury </h3>
