New Holiday Stamp

The U.S.P.S.'s new "Holy Family" stamp was issued yesterday, Oct. 10, 2013. The Forever stamp features Joseph leading a donkey that carries Mary and Jesus, guided by a shining star in the twilight sky. The stamp also features the word "Christmas" along the bottom edge.

Working together, art director William Gicker, designer Greg Breeding and artist Nancy Stahl have created the image of the Holy Family. 

The stamp was unveiled at a ceremony in the Washington, D.C., National Cathedral’s Bethlehem Chapel, whose “Epiphany Window” was featured in the Postal Service’s 1980 traditional Madonna and Child stamp issue.

 For more holiday images, the "Santa and Sleigh" stamps are being issued today. Here's the post I wrote a couple of weeks ago about those stamps: Santa Stamps!
