Four stamps featuring colourful gingerbread houses have been issued by the United States Postal Service. The four 'Forever' stamps have been issued in time for the Christmas season, a period when gingerbread houses decorated with colourful icing are used to celebrate the festive season.

The stamps feature four different gingerbread houses, each set against a blue background, with gingerbread decorations including sugary fruit slices for shingles, peppermint sticks for support beams, and round, candy-coated chocolate for doorknobs and holly berries.

Sally Andersen-Bryce photographed the gingerbread homes, which were created by baker Teresa Layman. Stamp designer on this issue was Derry Noyes.

To purchase the stamps, visit the United States Postal Service website.
