2011: Year of the Rabbit

I did a private swap on Postcrossing to get this postcard which I love. Even better, the sender drew a cute picture of dogs for me and included one of Japan's special 2011 Year of the Rabbit stamps. Hopper Home has images of various stamps celebrating the Year of the Rabbit. In my opinion, the United States' offering is the least interesting. The InterWeb has a number of pages that outline the characteristics associated with each year; I have no way of even guessing at the accuracy of the information, so I'll leave you to your own devices.

That's a cute card. I wish we had modern New Year postcards in the U.S.

Thanks for posting the link to Hopper home. I agree, the USA stamp is boring. Thank you also for participating in Sunday stamps! This meme is turning out to be very interesting.

See my comment on flickr! It's very nice to have friends who personalize items for you. Just for you. :)
Please forward my blog address to Asami. Maybe I could have a few Japanese partner/friends. :)

Oh - purely kawaiiness stamps! I want one of those, too. And I love the doodles on the postcard :)

Lovely card! I'm not sure what all the non-rabbit figures are for, but cute nevertheless. :)

Hi it's akilovessweets from swap-bot.
I'm in Japan and I also sent some postcards for new year, but this one is so cute!
