US, Canada Issue Special Stamps for Chanukah

The United States and Canada have issued stamps ahead of the eight-day Chanukah festival, which begins Tuesday night on December 20.

“This year, for the first time, all of our holiday stamps are being issued as ‘forever’ stamps,” said Stephen Kearney, executive director of Stamp Services for the U.S. Postal Service and quoted by the San Francisco JWeekly.

“These popular stamps rank among our best sellers, with 1.3 billion being sold from October to December last year. That amounts to one in every 10 stamps we sell for the year,” he added.

The postal service printed 25 million Chanukah stamps this year, following three previous stamps for the holiday since 1996, when the stamp featured a menorah.
