The fifth issue in our Lunar New Year stamp series celebrates the lunar Zishu year (2020) which is the Year of the Rat. 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, rats are seen as a sign of fertility, wealth and surplus. They are clever, quick thinkers and often successful. People born in the year of the Zishu rat are multi-talented. They are strong-willed and always finish what they begin.
