Celebrating the Chinese Year of the Snake – With a Twist

Chinese New Year began last Sunday… But the celebrations continue this week.

Most people celebrate Chinese New Year by watching a fireworks display or a lion dance.

But, take a look at one daring performer.

He decided to welcome the new year at a temple in Beijing….by inserting a live snake through his nose before pulling it out of his mouth.

This lunar new year 4711 is the year of the snake… According to the Chinese zodiac.
