New Beginning - Sunday Stamps

OK, so I'm cheating. I had never seen stamps heralding the New Year before. When idly searching for New Year material I came across these on the internet.

Russia 1991
And one with a design that does not strike me as much fun for the animal concerned but the source described it as a New Year Stamp.

New Year Stamp - Japan 1957
Happy New Year to everyone. I look forward to seeing your stamps throughout 2012.

I love the Russian stamp! The Japanese one is a bit strange. I wonder why they would associate whaling with the new Year.

The Japan stamp is curious, wonder what is symbolism is. Love the cheery Triangles.

Happy New Year Bob. It's surprising how few New Year stamps there appear to be.

It seems that most of the New Year stamps are from places where New Year is a big holiday and Christmas is celebrated less or not at all.
