USPS celebrates ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’ with limited edition stamps

The United States Postal Service gets into the holiday spirit with the Oct. 1 release of A Charlie Brown Christmas-themed Forever stamps. Though it may seem like they’re arriving a bit early, especially given the anti-commercialism themes of Charles Schulz’s animated special, the timing is a deliberate celebration of the strip’s Oct. 2 1950 newspaper debut.

Featuring ten images taken directly from the special, the limited edition release will be available as 20-stamp booklets.

The Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, CA will host the stamps’ dedication ceremony Oct. 1at 9 p.m.. Admission to the event is free, and the stamps will become available for purchase nationwide on earlier that day. Customers who pre-order booklets now via the USPS’s online store will receive them shortly after their release.
