I've complained before about the lack of pagan holiday cards. However, the US Postal Service seems to have started to publish pagan Christmas stamps. Isn't the stamp below a dancer wearing a horned headdress, playing the Pan pipes? I mean. How pre-Christian can you get?


MITSU
hiso(ka)
meaning: dense, secret

隠密 == onmitsu == (noun) privacy, secrecy, spy, detective
親密 == shinmitsu == (noun which takes な
to act as an adjective) intimacy, friendship


The bottom radical is 'mountain' (山). Top radical is a character found only in Chinese, comprised of 'building' (top part) and 'necessarily' (必). Henshall suggests as a mnemonic: 'Building in dense mountains necessarily secret.'
