2000 International Year of Thanksgiving
An act by the General Assembly of the United Nations declared 2000 the International Year of Thanksgiving. These three stamps feature an image of the Glory Window, located in the Chapel of Thanksgiving at Thanks-Giving Square in Dallas, Texas. The window was designed by artist Gabriel Loire of Chartres, France. By issuing this stamp, the UN hoped to raise awareness of the importance of gratitude and cooperation in both personal and civic relationships.
