A Chinese woman prepares to attach a Buddhist blessing tablet with wishes for the new year written on it to a sacred tree at the Dongyue Temple in Beijing on February 15, 2013. China is welcoming the Year of the Snake and tradition proclaims that a snake in the house is a good sign because it means the family will not starve and children born in the Year of the Snake will be cunning, intelligent and wise.
