Something to crow about – Canada Post hatches stamps to mark year of the rooster!

Legend has it that the Lord Buddha summoned all the animals to come bid him farewell before he departed the Earth. Only 12 showed up and, to show his appreciation, he named a year for each animal in the order of its arrival: Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep/Ram, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. On February 9, the Chinese will celebrate the beginning of the Year of the Rooster
