In 2010, the U.S. Postal Service joined in the winter celebrations by issuing beautiful new Holiday Evergreens Forever® stamps.

The stamps, which are always equal in value to the current First-Class Mail one-ounce rate, feature close-up views of the foliage and cones of four different conifers: ponderosa pine, eastern red cedar, blue spruce, and balsam fir.

The artist, the late Ned Seidler, was a gifted painter of nature subjects. When painting flora, he frequently used cuttings from plants and trees in his own yard as reference. He may have taken the same approach in working on this project.

Today we are giving away our last three sets of Holiday Evergreens notecards. To enter all you have to do is send your name and address to uspsstamps [at] gmail [dot] com. Winners will be chosen at random. The deadline for entries is midnight EST, Friday, December 14. Good luck!
