Dragons and snakes at Wai Yee Hong

15 02 2013

The Chinese year of the snake is being celebrated at Wai Yee Hong in Eastville on Sunday with traditional celebrations. Firecrackers will be lit at 11.15am to scare away the evil spirits for the new year. This will be followed by the Yi Quin lion dance troupe.

If you believe in such things, snakes are private individuals who are known for their intelligence and humanitarianism. They hate to fail which means they have good fortune, and can always find funds when they need them. If you are aged 12, 24, 36, 48, 60, 72, 84 or 96 this year, you are probably a Chinese snake.
