Halloween Jack-o-Lantern Forever Stamps

These cool looking Jack-O-Lantern Halloween stamps feature four different images of glowing Jack-O-Lanterns. The glowing pumpkins have happy and silly faces. The stamps were launched last year by the U.S. Postal Service. They were the first Halloween stamps ever issued by USPS.

The Forever stamps were designed by art director Derry Noyes. The jack-o-lanterns were carved by Paul Montanari and photographed by Sally Andersen-Bruce.

USPS says, "Brought to North America by immigrants from Ireland and Scotland, Halloween became a distinctively American celebration that transcended social boundaries and ethnic origin. After World War II, widespread enthusiasm for trick-or-treating gave the holiday a youthful emphasis, but since the 1970s adults have increasingly joined the festivities once again: a 2014 survey showed that nearly 67 percent of the American population celebrates Halloween in some way."

A book of twenty stamps costs $9.80. They can be found on usps.com and Amazon.comz. They are also still available at U.S. Post Office locations.
