Hong Kong: Year of the Pig -- postage stamps

What breeds of pigs? Haven't a clue. All Mister Bijou knows is Hong Kong's Year of the Pig postage stamps feature four plump pigs and, according to Hongkong Post, a "spirited" piglet. Stamps available 4 February 2007. Details here: hkpost

This year, Chinese Lunar New Year is a bit later than usual in the Western calendar. Chinese Lunar New Year Day is 18 February 2007. Oh, Chinese Lunar New Year holiday period hereabouts is Saturday, 17 February to Tuesday, 20 February 2007 (inclusive).
