“The snake ranks sixth of all the animals in the Chinese zodiac. People born in the Year of the Snake are the most intuitive, even while remaining the most private and reticent. Snake people represent the symbol of wisdom. They are intelligent and wise. Snake people are usually regarded as great thinkers.

Snakes are materialistic and love keeping up with the Joneses. They love to posses the best of everything, but they have no patience for shopping. Snake people prefer to work alone, therefore they are easily stressed; if they seem unusually stressed, it is best to allow them their own space and time to return to normal.”

from China High Lights‘ “Snake -Chinese Zodiac Animal”

YEAR OF THE (WATER) SNAKE

“Water Snakes are influential and insightful. They manage others well and tend to be good for organizations to utilize as staff. They are quite motivated and intellectual, very determined and resolute about success. They will have what they desire, despite the conclusion or outcome they generate because it is worth it to them to not only be recognized for their efforts, but to be rewarded as well. They are affectionate with their families and friends but do not show this side of their personality to colleagues or business partners.” from US Bridal Guide

Black Day

Posted in Holidays on April 14, 2012 by esmay013

In South Korea, singles celebrate Black Day on April 14th by eating “jajangmyeon–the Korean interpretation of a Chinese recipe for noodles coated with a chunky dark sauce of pork, onions, black beans, sugar and MSG.”  This is to make up for those who were forgotten on Valentine’s Day and White Day.  Groups of singles celebrate together while wearing and accessorizing in all black.
