New Stamp Celebrates Hanukkah

On Nov. 5, Canada Post issued a new commemorative stamp to mark Hanukkah.

A news release from Canada Post says the eight-day celebration begins at nightfall on the 25th day of Kislev in the Hebrew calendar – this year, on Dec. 10.

The stamp is available in advance, so Canadians can use it to send holiday greetings.

Designed by Entro Communications of Toronto, the stamp features a stylized blue-and-white menorah against a bright yellow background.

The permanent domestic rate stamp is available in a booklet of 10 and affixed to an Official First Day Cover.
