The Upcoming Holiday Forever Stamps 2020 are arriving, with the Holiday Delights booklet tomorrow, and the other three in October. Happy Wednesday morning, especially with the cooler September weather the past few days.
If you have been putting off getting that photo taken for including with your Holiday cards this year, this weekend may be a great time to get out the tripod and self-timer and snap a few photos! I was thinking it may be helpful and it is so timely knowing what is coming with the upcoming Holiday Forever 2020 stamps.
Tomorrow the Holiday Delights booklet of twenty Forever stamps is debuting with four designs (September 24). Then in October, there are three more Holiday Forever 2020 Stamps arriving on three different first-day-of-issue days: Hanukkah (October 6), Kwanzaa (October 13), and Our Lady of Guápulo (October 20), another booklet. All of them are available for pre-ordering now at the USPS Postal Store.
Upcoming Holiday Forever 2020 Stamps Begins With Holiday Delights
Let’s start with the Holiday Delights booklet #682804 arriving on September 24, 2020 in Frankenmuth, MI, with four stamp designs.
“Inspired by folk art but with a modern graphic vibe, these charming stamps will add a touch of whimsy to your holiday mailings.”
The four-holiday icons infuse Scandinavian folk art in them: “a prancing reindeer with antlers; an ornament tied with a bow and ready to hang; a tree topped with a star; and a stocking holding a teddy bear and a sprig of holly”
Debuting in time for Hanukkah this year (December 10 evening is when it begins this year) is the Hanukkah Forever stamp #575804. October 6, 2020, is the first day of issue, available in a sheet of 20 stamps.
“The stamp art’s colorful digital illustration shows the lighting of the hanukiah on the last evening of Hanukkah.
Next, there is the Kwanzaa Forever stamp #574904 arrives on October 13, 2020, in a sheet of 20; the first-day-of-issue will be in Nashville, TN.
“With this new stamp, the Postal Service™ continues its tradition of celebrating Kwanzaa. The annual Pan-African holiday, which takes place over seven days from December 26 to January 1, brings family, community, and culture together for many African Americans.”
Furthermore, the USPS Postal Store is still showing Kwanzaa 2016 Holiday Notecards #556666 with envelopes available in a set of 10, with the coordinating 2016 stamps included for $15.95.
