2018 Sparkling Holidays Souvenir Sheet
In celebration of the holidays, USPS released a special 2018 Sparkling Holidays Souvenir Sheet featuring a vintage-style painting of Santa Claus on Christmas Eve.
The sheet features a Haddon Sundblom painting, originally published in a 1963 Coca-Cola ad. It's an iconic scene of Santa visiting a home on Christmas Eve. It includes one semi-jumbo version of one of the four special-sized stamps included in the Sparkling Holidays set.
In the painting, Santa stands at a fireplace with a book listing good boys and girls. On the mantel, a note weighed down by a Coca-Cola bottle reads “Dear Santa Please Pause Here” signed “Jimmy.”
Below the image, reads “Sparkling Holidays” in a vintage style printed with gold metallic ink. The flow of the type and the shape of the border resemble graphic styles used in the first half of the twentieth century.
