The mainstreaming of the lunar new year is quite remarkable - companies such as Time Warner Cable have worked the holiday into their marketing campaigns. The envelope below, addressed to "current resident," brought their latest pitch.

People in many nations mark the lunar new year and many governments have issued stamps to mark the occasion. Below we send you pictures of those stamps as a way of celebrating and wishing you well.

恭喜发财!Gongxi facai!

Best wishes,
