The arrival of the new millennium is an exciting moment for people all over the world. The U.S. Postal Service issued a unique stamp to honor this extra special New Year’s Day. It features the artwork of illustrator Joseph Christian (J.C.) Leyendecker.
 
Leyendecker (1874-1951) was one of the most popular “Saturday Evening Post” artists. His first “Post” cover appeared in 1899, and over 300 more followed. The artist’s most famous covers were traditional depictions of the New Year’s baby. The image of the New Year’s baby on this U.S. postage stamp was the January 2, 1937, “Post” cover. The gold circle visible behind the baby was part of Leyendecker’s design. His signature can be seen below the baby’s cowbell.
 
The most heralded New Years’s Eve celebration takes place in New York City. People have gathered in Times Square to watch the New Year’s Eve ball was handcrafted by Waterford Crystal especially for the event. More than 40 craftsmen and designers worked on the ball, which is covered with 504 crystal triangles and 168 light bulbs. Shown on the front of this cover are the illuminated ball and huge numbers set up for officials to test prior to the countdown to the year 2000.
