This stamp is issued to celebrate the Lunar New Year that is part of the heritage of Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese, Tibetan, and Mongolian peoples. In the USA the occasion is marked in various ways across a diverse array of cultures. Parades, parties and other special events are common. The Year of the Rabbit begins on Feb 3, 2011 and ends on January 22, 2012 The stamp depicts Kumquats, which are given as gifts and eaten for luck at this time of renewed hope for the future.
