Stamp ceremonies and Christmas carols

The new Harry Potter stamp booklet is currently available at a limited number of United States post offices. Collectors who have trouble finding these stamps locally, however, will be able to order them direct from the U.S. Postal Service.

This month's newsletter includes details about the Harry Potter set and the Orlando ceremony celebrating the new issue. We also take a look at the events in Washington, D.C. for two stamps that commemorate our nation's Medal of Honor recipients.

With the approach of Christmas, we have information about post offices that can provide a postmark with a holiday theme, plus a feature on stamps celebrating the beloved Christmas carol Silent Night.

Happy collecting!
