Sparkling Holidays Stamps for Christmas

Classic Santa Delivers Holiday Greetings

Sparkling Holidays Stamps featuring classic images of Santa are available for mailing holiday cards and letters this year— a time-honored tradition embraced by millions annually.

The Postal Service dedicated the stamps at a special ceremony today at The Inn at Christmas Place in Pigeon Forge, TN.

“I have no doubt that the Sparkling Holidays stamps will quickly become favorites,” said Chief Financial Officer and Executive Vice President Joseph Corbett. “These four stamps feature classic images of Santa Claus, painted by Haddon Sundblom for The Coca-Cola Company. The paintings of the rosy-cheeked, smiling, grandfatherly man in his red suit embody the very essence of Santa.”

In addition to Corbett, the ceremony included remarks by Justine Fletcher, director of Heritage Communications for The Coca-Cola Company.

News of the stamps is being shared using the hashtag #SparklingHolidaysStamps and a video of the ceremony will be available on the Postal Service’s Facebook page.

The Sparkling Holidays stamps, sold in booklets of 20, feature four classic portraits of Santa Claus. Taken from larger paintings created by Sundblom, these vintage images were originally published in ads for The Coca-Cola Company from the 1940s through the early 1960s. Sundblom is credited as the individual who most refined the modern image of Santa.

In addition to the stamp booklet, a souvenir sheet is available which includes a stamp and depicts a wider scene of one of Sundblom’s paintings chosen for the Sparkling Holidays stamp booklet. In it, Santa is depicted standing by a fireplace holding a book that lists good boys and girls. Three Christmas stockings hang along a mantel decorated with greens and ornaments. Peering over his glasses, Santa reads a note. The use of gold metallic ink, the flow of the type, and the organic shape of the border harken back to graphic styles of the first half of the 20th century.

Art director Greg Breeding designed the stamps and the souvenir sheet with existing art by Sundblom.

Background
Several 19th century European works were instrumental in creating character traits that inspired Sundblom’s paintings, including an 1809 portrayal by author Washington Irving of the gift-bearing St. Nicholas as a sage Dutchman rather than the more common previous image of a somber bishop.

Santa Claus, as we know him today, originated from the 1821 poem “The Children’s Friend,” which claimed “Santaclaus” delivered toys to good children while riding a sleigh drawn by a flying reindeer. Several years later in the poem “A Visit From St. Nicholas,” the number of reindeer increased to eight and Santa was depicted as a jolly, plump elf who delivered presents Christmas Eve. Beginning in 1863, Cartoonist Thomas Nast embellished Santa’s look in drawings for Harper’s Weekly magazine. He depicted Santa in all manner of guises, from a portly elfin figure to a big-bellied, white-bearded man. In 1931, Sundblom created the first of more than 40 paintings of Santa Claus for The Coca-Cola Company’s holiday advertising campaign.

    I’m always on the lookout for ways to save money, and buying the forever stamps was a total no-brainer. Not only did it save me a decent chunk of change, but it also eliminated the hassle of having to constantly keep track of stamp prices. I highly recommend these stamps to anyone looking to simplify their life and save a little extra cash in the process.

    I ordered some christmas stamps 2023 from the USPS stamps website and I was very impressed by their quality and design. They are perfect for sending holiday cards to my family and friends. The stamps are self-adhesive and easy to peel off. They feature beautiful images of snowflakes, reindeer, and Santa Claus. I love how festive they look on my envelopes. I also bought some christmas stamps for cards that have different greetings and messages. They are very convenient and save me time from writing by hand. The USPS stamps website has a great selection of stamps for all occasions and seasons. I highly recommend them to anyone who loves sending cards and letters.
