China is one of the world's oldest and most long-lived cultures, with human settlement dating back to the Neolithic Era. Covering a vast region of eastern Asia, its many customs and traditions can vary greatly between provinces, cities, and even individual towns.
Many important components of Chinese culture can be traced back thousands of years, and are still visible today. These cultural phenomena include language and literature, music, visual arts, martial arts, cuisine, and much more.

It's not much of an exaggeration to say that snakes are the most symbolically charged members of the entire animal kingdom. All across the world, snakes have occupied the entire spectrum between reverence and hatred. What is particularly notable about snakes (although not unique by any means) is that they can be both admired and feared in the same culture without one symbolic facet canceling out the other. Whether they're seen as the embodiment of evil or as the repository of ultimate wisdom, the cultural importance of these creatures cannot be overstated.
