Council Member Letitia James and Chinese American Planning Council are hosting a Chinese New Year Celebration (post-holiday) on Friday, March 8, from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m.
The celebration takes place at P.S. 287, near the Navy Yard.
The cultural event will recognize the Year of the Snake, and include performances as well as other activities.
In 2013, the actual Chinese New Year spanned mid-February, but it's OK to celebrate now because it's the Year of the Snake all year.
According to HanBan: "The 2013 snake is a Water Snake. Water Snakes are lucky with finances, they always seem to have money flowing their way."
The color of the 2013 snake is black. "The Black Snake will bring people unexpected changes, instability, and changeability. That is why it is important in the year of Snake to plan everything beforehand, and evaluate adequately before taking any actions. You need to be more careful and cautious than ever."
According to Wikipedia, "In Chinese symbology, snakes are regarded as intelligent, but with a tendency to be somewhat unscrupulous."
