2013 Christmas Stamps Revealed

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.

Holiday rectangle pairThe 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.
