Year of the Rabbit

..and since I'm on the topic of Chinese New Year, I thought it would be appropriate to finish my posting today with this very nice Year of the Rabbit card I received from a swap from Hong Kong.

This card is from a set of 4 Year of the Rabbit cards. I got them all in this swap and this one is probably my favourite. White rabbits fascinate me.

Last year my Chinese friend organised a little New Year's party for some friends. It was really nice and I very much like the idea of having New Year as the main celebration of the year instead of Christmas. I don't think my friend is doing anything for friends this year as she's been pretty busy recently. I do hope she'll have something special with her family, though.

Anyway, back to the card. It came with a matching stamp! Unless I'm very much mistaken, it's also from a set of 4 stamps. The other two stamps are from a set of 16 definitives issued in 2006, showing birds.

These are SO nice! Have you checked the postcrossing forum for if someone is still offering Year of the Rabbit cards?
