The sixth stamp issued in the Happy New Year series celebrates the Year of the Tiger. It actually coincides with the year 4696 in the Chinese lunar calendar. The tiger is the third of twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac. These animals correspond to the twelve-year cycle of the lunar calendar.
 
According to this calendar, the new year and its festival begin with the first new moon after the sun enters the sign of Aquarius. Celebrations begin on the first day of the new year. One highlight of the celebrations is the Parade of the Golden Dragon, which is held on the first night of the year. This new year, the Year of the Tiger, began on January 28 and will end February 15, 1999.
 
 Individuals are said to have the disposition of the animal that represents the year of their birth. People born during tiger years are believed to be courageous and strong, as well as generous and sensitive. They may be self-assured, but can also be hasty and unpredictable. Tigers are leaders and protectors; they are noble and honorable.
 
In addition to individual attributes, each year is said to have the character of the animal for which it is named. It is believed that new undertakings should be carefully managed during a tiger year, but it is also a year that can be lucky and promises to be action-packed.
