The US continued its tradition of issuing a religious Christmas stamp featuring a Madonna & Child work of art.
American Holly
At the Mega-Event stamp show in New York City, the US issued an American Holly self-adhesive stamp.
These Wreaths stamps were originally scheduled for this year by the US Postal Service, but weren't needed, and the stamps weren't issued.

The US Postal Service says customers this year have the widest variety of stamps ever:  Last year's Skaters ATM (bank machine) stamps are again available, and last year's Hanukkah stamps were reprinted for 1997.  That's in addition to the Kwanzaa, Madonna & Child and Holly stamps issued this year.

Germany's two Christmas stamps are semi-postals, or surcharged: They cost more than the rate of postage. The extra payment goes to a specified charity, in this case, the Federal Association of Free Welfare Work in Bonn.
