The Chinese New Year begins today Sunday 10th February 2013. This year is the year of the Snake, this is the sign of might and intelligence and is seen as a very auspicious sign under which to be born. It has been predicted that the number of babies born in this year to Chinese families will show a mark rise this year.

If you are to follow Chinese superstitions and taboos it is important to ensure that you do not cry today as crying on the New Year means you'll be crying for the rest of the year. Don't wash your hair or you'll wash away all your luck and prosperity and don't clean your house on New Years day or you'll be cleaning away your good luck for the year. I rather like the last one its a great excuse not to work today and just relax and I am always up for that.
So I'll wish you all a Happy New Year and hope the Year of the Snake brings you luck health and happiness whether you are Chinese or not.
