Lunar New Year Generic/Collector Sheet: Year of the Rabbit - 8 December 2022

It's that time of year again when, about six weeks before the event, Royal Mail issue the Lunar New Year Collector Sheet in time for the Chinese population to buy it and either use the stamps & labels or gift them to the friends. 

This year is the 12th in the series, and is announced as the final instalment in the Lunar New Year Collector Sheet series.  

The Year of the Rabbit runs from 22 January 2023 to 9 February 2024. 

The labels are designed by hat-trick design and feature paper cut-outs both on the bright red background of the sheet and the labels representing the five elements of Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth. All the labels are complemented by the Fireworks definitive-sized stamp. 

2023 is specifically the year of the 'Water Rabbit' and those born in a 'Water Rabbit' Year are thought to be gentle, amicable, able to adjust readily to different conditions, as well as having slightly a weak mindset and principles. Lucky numbers are 3, 4 and 5 and lucky colours for 'Rabbits' are red, pink, purple and blue. 

We've not been given an embargo date for this so I shan't reveal it at present.   Instead I'll show one of the previous 11 sheets.
