Chinese Horoscope: the Snake stamp from French Polynesia
The post of French Polynesia issued a stamp to commemorate the Year of the Snake.
The Snake is the sixth animal that appears in the order of arrival in the Chinese zodiac, related to the Chinese calendar.
The “Snake” is described as a perfect being. Elegant and seducing, it has a taste for the finest things in life, nightly atmospheres and softly lit settings, which provide peaceful surroundings. But it remains very leery and has a bent for mystery. In Asian countries, it has a fine reputation and is revered for its wisdom and sagacity.
