The theme this week is religious Christmas stamps. The US Postal Service always has a classic Madonna and child stamp, and this year it is
From the USPS website:
"This Christmas stamp features a detail of Madonna and Child, a 15th-century tempera-on-panel painting.
Clad with a white veil over her head and a red garment trimmed in gold and partially covered with a gold-trimmed blue cloak, a haloed Virgin Mary gazes downward and to the right, looking at a blond, haloed Christ Child while placing her right hand on his shoulder. Behind both figures is a hedge of pink and white roses, with blue sky visible through their thorny, leafy stalks."
Happy holidays everyone.
