I agree. The Christmas Carols stamp is just average. I think the best one overall is the Father Hesburgh. The other two could have been somehow more interesting, especially the building. Once it is cancelled by the postmark it will be awful. I think they should consider the impact of the postmark when the stamp is designed.


I really like the snowy day ones, orange being one of my favorite colors. Also like that they are seasonal without being religious. The other three though...meh


You missed "The History of Hockey" stamps, but they look meh too.

Ugh, they are meh. Thanks for the catch!


The news release says "Snowy Day" celebrates "the first prominent 20th-century picture book featuring an African-American child." I guess I'm pretty lame because I really like that book but I didn't really notice the child was African American ??? Plus I thought for a moment the stamps were of tele-tubbies
