A Happy New Year to You and Your Family!
This is a Japanese-style New Year's postcard which depicts the animal of the year. This year 2012 is the "year of the
Seadragon DRAGON" based on the tweleve Chinese zodiac signs.
This postcard is a lottery. The winner will be chosen on January 22nd. The first prize of this year is a luxurious TV or travel coupon. However the sales of New Year's cards have been decreasing since 1999 because of the popularity of e-mail.
Still, I love to read the postcards from my friends on the New Year's Days and try to keep this custom forever.
