Year of the Snake

Posted in High Fashion by Piper Hanriot on February 12, 2013

We are currently celebrating the Chinese New Year for 2013, which this year is the year of the snake, the water dragon to be precise.  The Chinese New Year is the most important of the traditional Chinese holidays.  In China it is also known as the spring festival.  The origin of Chinese New Year is itself centuries old and gains significance because of several myths and traditions.

To help celebrate this amazing Chinese tradition, apparel designers all over SL have been creating some awesome pieces of clothing, of which I have a few to show you.

The dragon is one of the 12 year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac.  The year of the dragon is associated with the earthly branch symbol.  In the Gregorian calendar, Chinese New Year falls on different dates each year, a date between January 21 and February 20.

To all those celebrating Chinese New Year I hope you have fun and I hope that 2013, the year of the snake, is a good and prosperous year for you.

To all who have read this blog, I apologise, I believe it is in fact year of the Snake and not Dragon, which was 2012.
