Happy Lunar New Year from the USC US-China Institute!
Happy New Year! 新春快乐，羊年吉祥!
Happy New Year!
We wish you the best possible 羊年 (yangnian), no matter if you call it the Year of the cabra, chèvre, or ram, sheep, goat, southern serow, or yak.
For the past seven years, USCI has helped welcome the new year with collections of the lunar new stamps issued not just by China, Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan, but also by other Asian nations and nations in the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Oceania. You can see our 羊年 (yangnian) collection here. We'd love to hear which stamp is your favorite. You can tell us via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
Asia Pacific Arts, one of the institute's web magazines, has launched a podcast. The third episode of Bullet Train goes in search of lunar new year humor. Got any jokes for us? Just want to tell us what you think of Bullet Train? Please reach us via APA's Facebook, Twitter, or email pages.
Thanks for visiting the institute's website. We hope to see or hear from you soon.
With the warmest wishes,
USC U.S.-China Institute
P.S. If you'd like to send us a virtual 红包 hongbao (new year's gift in a red envelope), you could do so here.
