Today, February 5, begins the Lunar New Year 2019. The USPS began issuing the stamp on January 17th.

The Year of the Boar Forever stamp is the last one in the Celebrating Lunar New Year series taking twelve years!

To begin with, from my post back in 2016, “The Postal Service introduced its Celebrating Lunar New Year stamp series in 2008.  The series will continue through 2019 with stamps for the Year of the Rooster, Dog and Boar.” 

Next, I’m including this Twitter image from USPS sharing about the recent dedication.

“The Year of the Boar got off to an early start last week, when we dedicated the final stamp in our Celebrating  series. The stamp is available in sheets of 12 at Post Offices and!”
