Ring in the Lunar New Year with treats, noise, and celebration! A wooden candy tray, known as the chuen-hop or Tray of Togetherness, highlights the U.S. Postal Service®'s 2015 Year of the Ram stamp, eighth in the Celebrating Lunar New Year series. The Year of the Ram begins on February 19,2015 and ends on February 7, 2016.

In the United States and elsewhere, the occasion is marked in various ways across many cultures. Many families set out a candy tray, like the one depicted in the stamp art, to provide guests with an assortment of dried fruits and candies for a sweet beginning to the new year. 

The Year of the Ram stamp is being issued as a Forever® stamp.
