I was going to post a link to the cobra dance from the movie Bride & Prejudice, just because it's funny, but don't want to offend anyone. I think the story of the Garden of Eden has caused a lot of people to have negative reactions to serpents, but other cultures see snakes as symbols of re-birth, renewal, change, wisdom. It's all in what we bring to the party. I'm guessing the woman in the first video was in a trance?

Branches of christianity in the american south also do this.

My grandfather, specifically was head of a group who would make the snakes bite them, drink strychnine, speak in tounges all that stuff.

When you know what a man loves, you know what can kill him
