C241 Christmas 2005
Issue Date: November 1, 2005
On November 1, 2005, the Marshall Islands wish all a "Merry Christmas" with four new holiday postage stamps.
Christmas has been celebrated in the Marshall Islands since the
1850s, when the first American Protestant missionaries arrived. Today, most Islanders still have strong ties to the Protestant church.
Perhaps the most anticipated holiday in the Marshall
Islands, the Christmas season is filled with festive music and traditional holiday activities such as tree-trimming, caroling, gift-giving, family gatherings and religious observances.
Illustrated by Tom McNeely, these colorful stamps capture the spirit of Christmas with decorative angel motifs that include Angel with Lute, Angels in Jubilation, Angel with Trumpet and Angel
