• Jack o Lanterns USPS Forever First Class Postage Stamp U.S. Halloween Autumn Sheets ( 20 Pumpkin Stamps) (Book of 20)

    In the Spirit of Halloween, the U.S. Postal Service® issues these delightfully eerie stamps featuring photographs of four different jack-o'-lanterns. These creatively carved pumpkins have been symbols of Halloween in the United States since the late 19th century, not long after celebrations of the holiday began here. The jack-o'-lanterns were carved by Paul Montanari and photographed by Sally Andersen-Bruce. Brought to North America by immigrants from Ireland and Scotland, Halloween became a distinctively American celebration that transcended social boundaries and ethnic origin. After World War II, widespread enthusiasm for trick-or-treating gave the holiday a youthful emphasis, but since the 1970s adults have increasingly joined the festivities once again: a 2014 survey showed that nearly 67 percent of the American population celebrates Halloween in some way. With customs and traditions that vary widely by community, Halloween now inspires parades and revelry, corn mazes and haunted houses, neighborhood and school parties, jack-o'-lantern and pumpkin festivals, and even pumpkin-catapulting. No matter how or where people observe this ever-changing holiday, it remains a much-anticipated celebration of the macabre in the face of approaching winter. These stamps are th...

  • Hanukkah USPS Forever First Class Postage Stamp U.S. Holiday Sheet (20 Stamps)

    Hanukkah spans eight nights and days of remembrance and ritual. The U.S. Postal Service® joins the celebration with a new Hanukkah stamp in 2016. The stamp art features a warm, elegant illustration of a holiday menorah in the window of a home. The candles - one for each of the eight nights and days of Hanukkah, and the ninth, the shamash or "servant," used to light the other candles - are a creamy white and have all been lit. The white window trim is visible through the branches of the menorah, which echo the tangle of snow-covered tree branches beyond the glass. Hanukkah is the Hebrew word for "dedication." Tradition relates how a miracle took place during the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem, which had been desecrated by conquering armies. The sacramental oil, thought to be enough for only one day, burned for eight days. The miracle of the oil is at the heart of the ritual of the lighting of the hanukiah, a menorah - candelabra - used only at Hanukkah. Traditionally, it was placed for all to see at the entrance of the home to proclaim the miracle. Many times in history it was not safe for Jewish families to make such a public declaration of faith, and the menorah was set instead in a prominent place inside the home. Today in the U.S., many families are renewi...
