Surprise! It’s Christmas in August. (Really, who can wait for December?) We’ll be releasing two new Christmas stamps this year and here’s your first look at them.
The first stamp features a cheerful poinsettia, the most popular holiday plant in the United States. The second shows a detail from “Virgin and Child” by Jan Gossaert. Both are timeless symbols of the Christmas season, but can you guess in what century Gossaert created his oil-on-wood painting?
Both stamps will be issued as Forever® stamps in October.
