CANADA POST CELEBRATES CHANNUKAH WITH NEW DREIDEL AND MENORAH STAMPS

by J. Elly Buster, November 26, 2011

For the first time ever, Canada Post has created two picture postage

stamps specifically designed to celebrate Chanukah.

[wouldn 't it be nice if they made eight stamps, one for each day!] 

One stamp depicts a nine-branched Menorah lit in honour of

the holiday ,

 and the words ‘Happy Hanukkah’ in English and French.

 The second is of a  a dreidel with the words ‘Happy Hanukkah’

in English and French.

The Jewish Tribune reported that these " stamps have been doing

extremely well", according to a spokesperson

for Canada Post .

The stamps  went on sale on Oct. 16 and sold

out online.

They are being reprinted due to the demand and

will be available online again

from Nov. 24.

They are still available in select postal outlets

 across Canada.

Customers can also order by phone, or mail.


“We hope the community will embrace these new stamps and

use them to add a special touch to their Chanukah greeting,”

the spokesperson told the Jewish Tribune.

If they sell well enough, maybe next year th e post office will issue a stamp

 with a picture of greasy latkes or jambusters.
