The Water Snake is the animal sign for 2013 from the Chinese zodiac (shared with 1928, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001), those born in these years are said to be exciting yet dark with grace and intuition.
The lucky gemstones for the snake are Topaz, Jasper and Bloodstone. The reptiles lucky colour is red, which coincidentally combines the crimson custom of wearing the colour to scare away evil spirits and bad fortune. Tradition also advises you to give red envelopes to friends and family for good luck and prosperity.
For the next few weeks, don’t miss an opportunity to say say a hearty Happy New Year in Cantonese (“Kung Hei Fat Choy”), Mandarin (“Gōng Xǐ Fā Cái”), Korean (“Saehaebok Manhi Badeuseyo”) or Vietnamese (“Chúc Mừng Năm Mới”).
