C320 Year of the Rabbit
Issue Date: February 3, 2011
On February 3, 2011, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issues four new stamps celebrating the Year of the Rabbit. During the Han Dynasty (206 B.C.╩A.D. 220),
the Chinese calendar was organized into repeating 12-year cycles, each year designated by one of twelve animals. The Chinese commonly refer to the year by its animal name: 2011 is the Year of
the Rabbit. Those born in a given year are said to share that animal's character traits. Legend has it that when Lord Buddha departed from Earth, all the animals were summoned to bid him
farewell. Twelve animals showed up, and the rabbit was fourth in line. Thus, people born during the Year of the Rabbit╩1915, 1927, 1939, 1951, 1963, 1975, 1987, 1999 and 2011╩are not only
affectionate, they're also sentimental, cautious, forgiving and successful in business.
