Christmas Stamps Featuring Carollers

04 Dec 2017  Mon

Christmas is almost here and many of us would be waiting to listen to those soothing and melodious carols once again! Let’s take a look at some stamps that have featured carollers on them. A 1926 United States Christmas seal features three medieval court jesters singing and playing musical instruments.

3¢ carmine and 5¢ green stamps were issued by Canada in 1967 featuring three children singing a carol with the Peace Tower in Ottawa, Ontario, in the background.

Great Britain featured the claymation figures Wallace and Gromit (his dog) sharing a carol songbook on their non-denominated second-class Christmas stamps that were released in 2010.

A 2016 stamp from Antigua and Barbuda featured three Klingons, the warrior aliens from the Star Trek series, singing a carol.

Scientists claim that group singing can release feel-good hormones like oxytocin, which can reduce stress-related hormones like cortisol and improve immune system functioning.
