Personalized Year of the Pig stamps on cover from China

Besides regular Lunar year issue by Chinese Post, there is also this personalized stamp with vignette released on 26.1.2019. The Pig is the twelfth of all zodiac animals. According to one myth, the Jade Emperor said the order would be decided by the order in which they arrived to his party. Pig was late because he overslept. Another story says that a wolf destroyed his house. He had to rebuild his home before he could set off. When he arrived, he was the last one and could only take twelfth place. Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune as well.

Thank you, Xu!
