Celebrate the Year of the Snake

Celebrate the Year of the Snake

Another Chinese New Year has arrived, heralding the Year of the Snake. I’ve checked around the Internets to find out what this means for us and either (A) found conflicting information–some think it’s a good year for biz and other sources say it’s bad for the stock market, or (B) had trouble understanding the English translation of Chinese horoscopes. What did seem to be consistent was that it’s a year you want to do a lot of research before doing something major.

Well, pardon me for being blunt, but

DUH.

You don’t have to know anything about the Water Snake or the Black Snake–both have been mentioned as being Head Snake in Charge this year. You don’t even have to give a crap what year it is. Whether or not you’re pro or con on the topic, I think we can all agree that the snake looks gooooooood in home decor.

If you’re not big on snakes, next year’s Year of the Horse might be more decor-friendly for you.
