As the Chinese Lunar Calendar ushers in the Year of the Snake, the innovative tetra-decagon series continues with its second annual release. The Chinese Lunar Calendar is a twelve-year cycle. Each cycle is represented by a different animal, each with its own distinct personality. People born within each lunar year are believed to possess the qualities of that year’s animal, using those traits to achieve success and happiness throughout life.
