The snake is the 6th of the 12 animal signs in the Chinese Zodiac. Those born in the year of the snake are said to have distinguishable charm and clever acumen. However, sometimes well spoken words may disguise deceptive motives... Of the 12 animals, the snake most closely resembles the dragon--the most powerful and lucky of the zodiac animals. Therefore, it is sometimes referred as "little dragon. Happy Year of the snake and all the best for a healthy, successful and prosperous 2013!
