It's A Charlie Brown Christmas

It's A Charlie Brown Christmas

September 29 2015

ORLANDO, FL — The U.S. Postal Service begins celebrating the
holiday season by dedicating the Charlie Brown Christmas Forever
stamps October 1st. The booklet of 20 stamps features 10 still frames
from the 1965 TV special “A Charlie Brown Christmas” (two of each
design) celebrating the classic’s 50th Anniversary.

The stamp images include: Charlie Brown holding the sapling that
eventually becomes his Christmas tree; Charlie Brown and Pigpen with
a snowman; Snoopy and children ice skating; the cast of the program
gathered around the Christmas tree; Linus kneeling by the sparsely
decorated Christmas tree; Charlie Brown checking his mailbox for a
Christmas card; Charlie Brown and Linus leaning on a snowy brick wall;
Charlie Brown and Linus standing by the Christmas tree; a frustrated
Charlie Brown standing in front of Snoopy’s doghouse; and, Charlie
Brown decorating the tree in front of the prize-winning lights display on
Snoopy’s doghouse.

The early October release of the stamp coincides with the Peanuts comic
strip debut in seven newspapers on October 2, 1950: The Washington
Post, The Chicago Tribune, The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, The
Allentown Call-Chronicle, The Bethlehem Globe-Times, The Denver
Post, and The Seattle Times. When Schulz announced his retirement
in December 1999, the Peanuts comic strip was syndicated in more
than 2,600 newspapers worldwide, with book collections translated
in more than 21 languages. Customers may purchase new stamps at
local Post Offices, at The Postal Store at or by calling
