Year of the Snake! by Shattered-Earth Year of the Snake! by Shattered-Earth

Happy Chinese New Year / Lunar New Year!


This year is the year of the snake if you follow the eastern Zodiac, and Feb 10th marks the beginning of serpenty goodness. I myself am a dragon, so I am waving good bye to my year tonight and welcoming the year of 95% of my former classmates XD

I hope everyone is having a great night and for those of you who celebrate it, i hope you are with or thinking of your family and having a great feast!




Bonus trivia, my snake girl is a red banded snake, Dinodon rufozonatum 赤链蛇, a common snake indigenous to China and east Asia~

Red is a lucky color for the new year!

And the chinese character for luck 福 is displayed upside down for the new year to symbolize luck coming :3 we always had one back home TuT
