The fourth issue in our Lunar New Year stamp series celebrates the lunar Jihai year (2019) which is the Year of the Pig. Also known as the Spring Festival, it is the most important celebration in the Chinese calendar. It is celebrated by Chinese and ethnic communities around the world and is a time when families come together.
In Chinese culture, pigs represent good luck and fortune and are thought to attract wealth. They can be materialistic but this is due to their motivation to work hard and reap the rewards, accumulating wealth gradually and into later life. People born in the year of the Jihai pig are friendly and popular although they can also be gullible and judgmental.
