In case you missed the news, the U.S. Postal Service is issuing an official 50th anniversary Peanuts “Christmas” stamp beginning Oct. 1. (You can pre-order online as USPS.com)

Just in time for the holiday greeting card frenzy, the Charlie Brown Forever stamps feature 10 frames from the beloved TV special, “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” including Charlie Brown and his iconic Christmas tree, of course, as well as Charlie Brown checking his mailbox for a Christmas card, Charlie Brown and Linus leaning on a snowy brick wall and more.

ABC will again air the annual TV special this year; no air date has yet been announced. On Nov. 30, Kristen Bell hosts the TV special “It’s Your 50th Birthday, Charlie Brown,” also on ABC.
