“A Charlie Brown Christmas” Stamps for Peanuts’ 65th Anniversary

On October 2, 1950, Charles M. Schulz’s comic strip Peanuts debuted in seven newspapers. October is also National Stamp Collecting Month. To celebrate the 65th anniversary of Peanuts, the U.S. Postal Service is releasing a new set of Peanuts stamps today, featuring ten scenes from the TV special “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” The TV show first aired 50 years ago, in December of 1965.

The stamps are “forever stamps,” meaning they are sold at the current rate for a first-class letter and will always be good for mailing a one-ounce letter, even when rates go up. They will be formally introduced at a ceremony this morning at the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, California. You can order the stamps through the USPS website or, if you’re lucky, at your local Post Office. Stamp collectors can also purchase First Day Covers with either black or multicolor postmarks, press sheets, and framed art.

Thank you ma'am (spose the USPS does too as an order has been placed). Might not have seen this otherwise. Christmas, Peanuts, and A Charlie Brown Christmas - these are a few of my my favorite things. :)
