Ek wil een en ander 'n voorspoedige nuwe jaar toewens!!
As julle meer te wete wil kom:
In China, some couples have apparently been trying to schedule their pregnancies to avoid having children born during the snake year, in contrast to the coveted Year of the Dragon.
In Beijing, a manager with the government office that arranges appointments with obstetricians said there was a noticeable drop in appointment requests compared with those received as the Year of the Dragon approached, though she offered no firm statistics.
For souvenir-makers, snakes have been a tough sell.
"Last year, our business was a lot better, because everybody loves the dragon, whatever his or her animal sign," said Lin Peixiang, who owns the Beixiang Souvenir Factory in the city of Wenzhou.
"This year, business is a lot worse, because only those born in the year of the snake love the animal. The snake sign is a symbol of fear. People get scared when they see or hear the snake."
Hierdie is wel die herdenking van my geboortejaar, so dit sal goed gaan ...
