Happy Chinese New Year. It’s the Year of the Snake! This means that people born this year are babies. I didn’t do much research, sorry.

Haha, that’s true. Everyone born this year is a baby (as is everyone when they are born — except maybe Benjamin Button). Check out Wikipedia if you want to know more about the Chinese Zodiac snake.
