C337 Christmas 2011

Issue Date: October 13, 2011

No Picture

On October 13, 2011, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued 12 new stamps celebrating Christmas. Christmas is the season of delight; of carols by candlelight; roaring log fires; feasts of turkey and Christmas pudding; crackers full of novelties, jokes and riddles, and the ever-popular fancy paper hats. It is a time for celebration; for the bringing of gifts; for the playing of games; for dressing up, for pantomimes and parties. Most people, whatever their beliefs, are moved by the beauty of the Nativity story and subscribe to the message of the angels: "Peace on earth, good will toward men." Decking our homes and churches, our schools and places of work, the town centers and the streets, not only creates a festive atmosphere, but also helps to spread that universal message proclaiming "Seasons Greetings, Joy, and Happiness" to all.
