New Stamps on Year of the Horse:Christmas Island
The Chinese zodiac uses animal signs to date the years over a 12-year cycle and 2014 is the Year of the Horse.
For festive seasons, such as New Year, the Chinese lunar calendar is the determining factor.The seventh sign in the cycle, the Horse symbolises perception and power and the Chinese idiom – lăomăshítú – literally means “an old horse knows the way”: experience is valuable.
