A snowy calendar celebrates New Year and wishes the world a Happy New Year. In 1963 the Hungarian post issued a set of New Year stamps for the Postal and Philatelic Museum Fund.
There were six stamps in the set with piglets, pierrot, four leaved clovers, horseshoes and in fact anything that might bring good luck for the coming year. This one features a young chimney sweep wearing the traditional costume, a wire brush over his shoulder and raising a glass to toast good health while carrying his four leaf clover. Touching a chimney sweeps button is believed to guarantee good fortune but the presence alone at New Year brings good luck. They are thin on the ground nowadays so maybe it is a case of first find your chimney sweep. Wishing you all health, wealth and happiness in the New Year.
