The Contemporary Christmas Stamp 1980 “Wreath and Toys on Window” by artist Bob Timberlake we are looking at today.

You’ll want to be sure to read the entire article – available online, and if you get a chance, pick up a copy – the issue is worth saving!

“This Christmas issue depicts a warm family home on Christmas morning. It serves as a reminder of the importance of family during the holiday season.”
In closing, it was back in October, we were looking at the new USPS Holiday Wreaths 2019. With today’s post on the Contemporary Christmas Stamp 1980 Wreath and Toys on Window, it puts bookends on the season.
See you tomorrow for my Christmas Eve blog post. Until then, wishing safe travels for everyone.
