Gung hay fat choy!

Was surprised my post office already had these stamps on hand today. The Japanese has celebrated New Year on January 1 since 1873 but most other Asian countries still celebrate in the lunar year. I had no idea that this was the case until I moved to the States and found out my friends operated on a different time frame. I was born the year of the Dragon so I guess I had better behave appropriately.

Yes? I was wondering if the previous CNY series could be topped (paper cut). But the lanterns, kumquats and now the dragon have been fabulous.
