    Just getting into the spirit of the season! I saw this one on the USPS website today, haven't seen one in real life yet. Looks neat, even if it is a modern stamp!

    I don't think so. I haven't seen it, but it's probably just one of the USPS stickers.

    I'm kinda cheating.. My favorite Christmas stamp this year is this circle date STAMP. It is an as yet unrecorded town cancel from Little River, Cal Dec 25 1922.

    These are neat, from one of the classic Christmas TV shows.

    I think this is cute with Santa wearing the Barong Tagalog and carabao instead of reindeer. :p

    I remember that cartoon show with Burl Ives and the Island of "misfit toys". Those are really cute stamps too.

    Thats a beautiful stamp! Really looks festive and would make receiving a letter cheerful and exciting to know that Christmas wishes have come from somewhere

    I love this Christmas stamp, issued in Canada all the way back in 1898!

    Hochstrasse:

    Great choice for the magi Christmas stamp. It is an iconic design that is a welcome respite, in my opinion, from the Madonna & child stamps. The art work looks original. Others apparently share your opinion as this stamp is already sold out at the Post Office's online site. That's amazing for a Christmas stamp, especially considering there are several other designs to choose. Here's a link to the PO sold out statement:

    https://store.usps.com/store/browse...&productId=S_689704&categoryId=holiday-stamps

    So, if anyone wants the magi stamp for their Christmas cards, the only option now is the local post office.

    Hope you are not flooded out by the recent storm on the west coast.

    I hadn't realized that the stamps was sold out at the "cave", but I agree it's a nice diversion from the usual Madonna & child stamp that I usually see. Hope to get one on a Christmas card then. We got about 3 1/3 inches in the past 24 hours here where I live. The only inconvenience I experienced was staying indoors all day, but lots of people had hardships around the Bay Area.

    Really nice. I think it is a good thing that it is huge so, details can be easily seen. :D

    Nice colors in this stamp. Looks like it might be an adaptation from a medieval illuminated manuscript.
