Are you expecting a snake in the Chinese New Year 2013?

Snake presents for babies born in 2013

Here at Babyology, we are expecting quite a few babies in this new Chinese Year of the Snake so let’s take a look at what we are in for. 

According to the Chinese Zodiac, the snake is believed to be aware, together and intuitive. Some characteristics of people born in the year of the snake are culture, grace, elegance, sophistication and materialism. I hope you have some pretty fancy baby gifts lined up if you are going to try to impress any little snakes this year.

Scratch below the surface and you will find that snake people are also wise, sympathetic, fortunate with money and determined. Their greatest allies are the ox and rooster.

In addition to the twelve animal signs of the Chinese zodiac, each one is accompanied by a particular element (Earth, Metal, Fire, Water, Wood) and 2013 brings us Water Snakes. The Water element is thought to deliver versatility and flexibility along with intelligence and wisdom. Our little snakes will be complex creatures!
