  Continuing the issue of Folklore Stamps, another one stamp with 〝Stilts〞as the central design was issued. Stilts have been used for play and amusement in China for more than 3,000 years. Today dramas on stilts are performed mostly on Lunar New Year's holidays, but also on other joyful occasions such as National Day and temple fairs.
