C256 Christmas 2006
Issue Date: November 1, 2006
On November 1, 2006, the Marshall Islands wish all a "Merry Christmas" with a new holiday postage stamp.
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 Dean Ellis, this colorful stamp captures the spirit of Christmas with a decorative holly plant, vibrant holiday ornaments, and a dove symbolizing peace.
