The U.S. Post Office on Jan. 15 issued the “Celebrating Lunar New Year: Year of the Horse” Forever stamp. It is available in sheets of 12 stamps.

“The start of the Lunar New Year is the biggest holiday of the year for much of the world’s population,” said U.S. Postal Service San Francisco District Manager David Stowe, in dedicating the stamp at the Chinese Culture Center in the Hilton Hotel.

Although a horse appears in the upper left hand corner of the stamp image, the Postal Service chose to tell “a more enriching story” by including essential elements in celebrating New Year, such as the drum in this case. (end)
