The Postal Service released a video about its new Year of the Dragon stamp. The Forever stamp celebrates the Lunar New Year, an important holiday in many Asian cultures and the United States, and depicts the only mythical creature in the Chinese zodiac.
The three-minute video features Eduardo H. Ruiz Jr., the Postal Service's WestPac Area Vice President, Nicole Dowd, head of public programs for the Smithsonian's National Museum of Asian Art, and our very own Connie So, a Professor at the University of Washington.
