How do you celebrate your birthday? What’s better than spending time with friends and family, and blowing out candles on a birthday cake? How about getting your own stamp? Nope, we’re not talking about a rubber stamp, but an official US Postal Service (USPS) Forever stamp! That’d be pretty sweet, right?
This year marks the 50th anniversary of Sesame Street, and the USPS is helping the beloved children’s show celebrate the big 5-0 with stamps! Yep, for a limited time, you can purchase a sheet of stamps with Big Bird, Ernie, Bert, Cookie Monster, Rosita, The Count, Oscar the Grouch, Abby Cadabby, Henry Monster, Julia, Guy Smiley, Snuffleupagus, Telly, Grover, Zoe, and Elmo on them. We’re not sure about you, but we think this is a pretty awesome way to celebrate a birthday! How else is Sesame Street celebrating? By doing what they do best: producing shows that help kids learn and understand difficult topics.
