February is full of happiness, showing love and care to persons who we would like to share best wishes. There are a lot of symbols of the day of love or Valentine’s Day. Various gifts or souvenirs that we share to others convey different meanings.
The symbol of love 2015 depicts a rose named “Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn” with perfumed ink to commemorate 60th Anniversary of HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn.

As I write this on January 1st, the first of Thailand’s stamp issues for 2015 is scheduled for release. It is a public holiday and the local post office is closed so I will attempt to purchase my copies of the stamp and first day cover tomorrow. This first issue, 1058 in Thailand Post’s numbering scheme, is the annual Chinese zodiac issue for the Year of the Goat in a completely new design as the previous twelve releases in this series. One of the things I love about collecting Thai new issues is the low face value – most stamps are either three or five baht so an entire sheet of ten or twenty can be purchased for less than US $2.00. A full set of single stamps and first day covers for the entire year will run less than $50, judging on what has been announced so far.
