When the holiday season comes around each year, one of the most popular traditions is the sending of cards to friends and family. In 2020, the United States Postal Service issued a set of new Forever stamps picturing 10 different winter scenes. They are a great choice for sending cards or letters during the holidays.
Winter is the perfect time to sit back and reflect on all the good things that happened the previous year. And a growing number of people include a short letter with their holiday cards to keep friends and family up to date. Perhaps these letters tell about the wedding of their children, the birth of their first grandchild, or even the welcoming of a new pet into the household. It is a fun way to relive the triumphs of the year and share joy with others.
In 2020, there were certainly struggles to be had, but there were plenty of good things that happened, too: Adam Castillejo became the second person in the world to be cured of HIV, global air and water pollution decreased tremendously, over 250 million trees were planted in India, and more. And, of course, there were countless babies born, dogs and cats adopted, and couples married.
Whether you have a lot of happy memories to share with your family and friends, or maybe just a few, sending a holiday card and letter is a great way to stay in touch. Sometimes people who have not talked in years may remember all the great things about each other and rekindle long-lost friendships. And it is all thanks to stamps and the hardworking United States Postal Service employees that all our holiday letters and cards make it to their destinations.
