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.
