There are people that love snakes, none that I know, but they are out there. I think the worst fear of snakes involves the idea that you don’t ever know what to expect from them. They do serve a useful purpose though by keeping the insect and rodent population down. They have been associated with evil ever since the Garden of Eden. One wonders if our thoughts about them would be different if it had been a donkey that tempted Eve. We will never know. There are some 3,400 types of snakes across the world.
How to celebrate – Learn what snakes thrive in your area. Avoid snakes where you can. Learn which snakes are dangerous where you live and which ones aren’t.
