This is actually part of South Korea's 2-stamp and 2-souvenir sheet Christmas and New Year's set, Scott 932-933, and 932a-933a. Issued in December 1974, it was for the upcoming year, 1975, which was the Year of the Rabbit.
Feliz Navidad a todos ustedes. (Merry Christmas to all) Que tengan una muy linda fiesta junto a sus familias y seres queridos. (Have a very nice holiday with your families and loved ones.) Un abrazo grande a todos. (A big hug to all.)
Philatarium , as a Korea collector I have always chuckled a little bit when I see this stamp. Rabbits and Christmas are just not regularly paired together in the US...too funny.
This reminds of a time long, long ago when I had the genius idea to serve fried rabbit as an Easter Sunday meal. I will never, so long as I live, forget the look on my young children's faces when it dawned on them they were "eating the Easter bunny". It was one of those things that seemed like a clever, humorous idea but was in the end an epic fail.
I know the feeling. As a youngster I managed to acquire a pet rabbit which I named Wigglenose. My parents kept suggesting getting rid of him, so one day, when when he bit my finger, I said OK. I still remember the deep regret I felt at dinner time when I suddenly realized that Wigglenose was the main course.
