C360 Year of the Snake
Issue Date: February 10, 2013
On February 10, 2013, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued four new stamps celebrating the Year of the Snake. The Chinese zodiac, or Sheng Xiao, is a combination of
symbolism and mathematical complexities. The Sheng Xiao possibly originated during the reign of Emperor Huang in 2637 B.C. Twelve animals are associated with the calendar: the rat, ox, tiger,
hare, dragon, snake, horse, ram, monkey, rooster, dog and boar. The Sheng Xiao consists of repeating cycles, with 2013 being the Year of the Snake. Those born in a given year are said to share
that animal's character traits. Thus, people born during the Year of the Snake are kind, courageous and goal-oriented. In ancient times, the Chinese zodiac played a great role in people's lives
by providing guidance in decisions regarding marriage and childbirth. Even today, the horoscope remains an integral part of everyday life for many people.
