Lunar New Year Celebrated on Stamp

Commemorating the Lunar New Year, the United States Postal Service issued Monday a new Forever Stamp featuring a dragon, the fifth of 12 animals associated with the Chinese lunar calendar.

This colorful stamp is the latest collectible in the Postal Service’s Celebrating Lunar New Year series, which began in 2008 with the Year of the Rat. The Year of the Dragon begins Monday and ends Feb. 9, 2013. The stamp goes on sale at Post Offices nationwide and online at usps.com.

“The Postal Service is proud to celebrate the Lunar New Year with the issuance of this magnificent Forever Stamp,” said USPS VP of Sales Cliff Rucker, who dedicated the stamp. “Dragons are regarded as magical or divine, welcome symbols of renewed hope for the future. With this new stamp, we hope that the year will bring the best to all of us, no matter what sign we were born under.”

A self-supporting government enterprise, the U.S. Postal Service is a delivery service that reaches every address in the nation, 151 million residences, businesses and Post Office Boxes.
