holiday stamps for 2012 feature a “classic” image of Santa and his reindeer circling around snow-covered rooftops. The scene is composed of four different stamp designs in two rows of two stamps each. Art director Howard E. Paine worked with illustrations by Paul Rogers in creating these gems. And this year, Operation Santa observes its 100th anniversary! Designed to make sure Santa visits children who might not otherwise have any gifts at Christmas, postal employees and citizens may register at any participating U.S. Post Office and read letters to Santa from participating boys and girls, then select a letter and provide gifts for the writer.
