Watch a video about the Year of the Dragon stamp

The latest in the Lunar New Year series portrays the Chinese zodiac’s only mythical being

The Postal Service has released a video about its new Year of the Dragon stamp.

The Forever stamp celebrates the Lunar New Year, an important holiday in many Asian cultures and the United States, and depicts the only mythical creature in the Chinese zodiac.

The three-minute video features Eduardo H. Ruiz Jr., the Postal Service’s WestPac Area vice president, who spoke at the Jan. 25 dedication ceremony for the stamp; Nicole Dowd, head of public programs for the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Asian Art; and Connie So, a professor at the University of Washington.
