1998 32¢ Tropical Wreath
Wreaths
Issue Date: October 15, 1998
City: Christmas, MI
Quantity: 71,500,000
Printed By: Banknote Corporation of America
Printing Method: Lithographed
Perforations: 11.4 x 11.5
Color: Multicolored
 
Tropical Hawaii has its own natural Christmas decorations: festive poinsettias and other ornamental plants, which grow there, decorate homes and gardens. Each year, fir trees from the U.S. northwest have to be transported by ship to the Aloha state. 
 
During the holiday season, beaches and streets are brought to life by carolers accompanied by ukuleles. The distinct Hawaiian culture and people are important to the Christmas celebration there. Nativity pageants, featuring children of Chinese, Japanese, Hawaiian, Filipino, and Caucasian origins, are presented. For the traditional yuletide luaus, a Kailua pig is roasted.
 
The Christmas holiday is much different in Hawaii than in other parts of the United States because of the warm climate. On that day, birds can be heard singing in the trees; carnations and roses are blooming on lawns; and fields and mountains are ablaze with color. The scene is totally different from Christmas in New York, where snow, ice, and chilly temperatures are signs of the holiday season.
 
On Christmas morning in Hawaii, many people go to church. During the afternoon, families often play sports and games. The holiday dinner is usually enjoyed outdoors on a porch or balcony.

  • 1847 5¢ Benjamin Franklin, red-brown, thin bluish wove paper, imperforate U.S. #1 - First U.S. Postage Stamp

    On July 1, 1847, the first US postage stamps went on sale.  The 5¢ issue of 1847 (US #1) features a portrait of Benjamin Franklin, the man responsible for organizing America's postal service back in the 1700s.  Postal clerks used scissors to cut the stamps from sheets, as perforations weren't in use yet.  Today, US #1 is a valued piece of American postal history and a lucky find in any condition.
