Celebrate The Year of The Snake with Jewelry, Shoes, and Accessories
Although the majority of the world celebrated the mark of the New Year on January 1st, the Chinese culture is preparing for their own festivities in honor of Chinese New Year (on February 13th).
“Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festivity in the Chinese calendar. The origin of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because of several myths and traditions. Chinese New Year is celebrated in China and in countries and territories with significant Chinese populations, including Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Taiwan, Mauritius, Philippines, and also in Chinatowns elsewhere.” [Wikipedia]
Similar to western Astrology, in the Chinese culture, each year is identified by one of twelve specific animals (such as a rooster, horse, tiger, etc.) assigned to their zodiac calendar. 2013 is recognized as the year of the snake.
A fun way to get in the spirit of the Chinese New Year and to celebrate The Year of The Snake is with snake-inspired fashion, jewelry, and accessories. Featured here are several fabulous finds, including sensational snake-shaped rings and bracelets, and exotic snakeskin shoes and bags.
