Mint Liberia Stamps Commemorate Year of the Ram

Since the first Lunar New Year stamp was issued by China in 1980, stamps honoring the holiday have become an annual tradition around the globe.  Now you can own this neat mint 2015 Liberia sheet commemorating the Year of the Ram.

The Ram in Chinese Culture

According to tradition, “Jade Emperor” wanted a way to measure time.  On his birthday, he challenged all the animals to race across a wide river.  The winners of the race would be included in the zodiac.  The ram (or goat) rode a raft across the river with a monkey and a rooster.  The emperor was pleased the animals worked together and allowed the ram to be the eighth animal in the zodiac.

The city of Guangzhou, China, is home to a statue of five rams.  According to legend, the land was barren and the citizens were suffering from famine, before five gods rode into the city on rams carrying rice in their mouths.  When the gods left the city, the rams turned to stone, and Guangzhou (which means City of Rams) became prosperous.
