I went to the post office last week to buy holiday stamps. And what to my wondering eyes did appear but the Rudolph stamp collection!

My dad was a stamp collector. He is still alive but no longer collects stamps. Although I love looking at cool stamps from around the world  or that celebrate important people or events, I never really understood the appeal of stamp collecting. That said, I love holiday stamps and the USPS has really outdone themselves this year. Just looking at them makes me sing and want to be a dentist. Just joking.

Last year, I chose these:

As I mentioned in a previous SOLS post, I send a lot of cards this time of year, and that is my mani reason for buying holiday stamps.  However,  I like to put holiday stamps on the few bills I still pay by mail. I like to think that the person opening the envelope has just a moment of cheer in what otherwise be a very dull day at work.

    I bought the Rudolph stamps a few weeks ago. Made paying bills much more festive,,,if that is possible. Now I have the gingerbread houses.

    Ma aunt was a stamp collector…first edition, plate blocks etc. I still have her collection.

    I love those Rudolph stamps! I always have a soft spot for Rudolph… even though the movie used to really scare me as a kid!
