Sunday Stamps 105

Hello from the cold (though it could be colder) American Midwest!
The theme today for Sunday Stamps is Secular Christmas.  I would like to share this year's stamps from the US Postal Service.  The scan and the text is theirs.


"In 2016, the U.S. Postal Service® issues Holiday Windows, four new stamps that rejoice in the simple pleasures of the season. 

Nothing compares to the tranquil calm of a winter evening after the snow has fallen and the sun has set. Whether you enjoy viewing the peaceful scene from a cozy spot indoors or feeling the chill on your face outside, these brief moments remind us of what makes this time of year so special. Recalling nostalgic winter nights from childhood, these stamps highlight the role windows play during the holidays, letting us delight in the snow when we’re inside while also sharing our warmth and merriment with the outside world.

Conveying the joyful and reverent spirit of the holiday season, these elegant stamps showcase various ways we observe traditions and spread cheer. Each stamp is sure to add a dash of winter bliss to letters and cards during the year’s coldest months. 

The Holiday Windows stamps are being issued as Forever® stamps. These Forever stamps will always be equal in value to the current First-Class Mail® one-ounce price. "

Enjoy the season, everyone.

Visit Sunday Stamps and see who else is joining in.

Nice choice today. I like these stamps, although I think they are a little less bright in person than in the online images.

These are very nice (In especially like the star) but maybe they could have had one stamp without snow for those states which never have the white stuff!

For some reason, this theme of Holiday windows evoke two feelings: that of longing and serenity. Thanks for sharing all these 4 designs.

I've also read that they aren't so nice in person, but I like the idea of Christmas windows.

I must wait for my daughter's card to see which of these she has used.
