2014 The Year of the Horse stamps from Magyar Posta

January 26th, 2014

2014 is the Year of the Horse in the Chinese zodiac, which Magyar Posta is celebrating on a miniature sheet. According to the Chinese zodiac, this year will be the year of relaxation, childhood, joy, goodness and receptiveness. People born under the sign of the Horse are dynamic and have abundant material resources. The miniature sheet was made using paintings by the Chinese artist Xu Beihong (1895–1953), who is esteemed mainly for his works in ink. Eighty thousand copies of the miniature sheet were produced on fluorescent fiber stamp paper as a security feature by ANY Security Printing Company. This stamp issue was made by Magyar Posta in cooperation with the Inter-Governmental Philatelic Corporation (IGPC).

The Year of the Horse officially begins on 31 January 2014 and lasts until 18 February 2015. People born under this sign are thought to be communicative, popular, cheerful, and know how to enjoy themselves. They are spontaneous and exploit every opportunity.

Horse people are fiery, stubborn and impulsive but can show restraint when necessary.

They are very hard workers but only get involved if it is profitable for them. Praise and recognition is appreciated by them, but sometimes they are vain and proud. They like freedom and shy away from restrictions and constraints, but nevertheless respect tradition. Whatever area they work in, they will do well. Their character is strong and decisive. They like to travel especially in company.
