The Chinese New Year is coming in 3 days. The new year's eve is February 9th this year. From February 10th, it will be the new year of snake. Although snake was worshiped in ancient Chinese mythologies, it is often associated as sinister or vicious nowadays. Peoples born in the years of snake prefer to consider themselves as a smaller dragon. The snake year falls behind the dragon year and body of the dragon comes from the snake. There is one exception - "The Legend of the White Snake". It is the story of a white snake turning into a female figure and married to the man who once saved her life.
