WASHINGTON, D.C., December 21, 2000: Since President Clinton recognized the value of Hindu's contributions by way of a Divali message from the White House, American Hindus have started to promote the idea of a Divali stamp to be issued by the US Postal Service next year. Aside from Christmas stamps which are issued by the hundreds of millions, the Jewish holiday of Hannukah was commemorated by the U.S.P.S. by way of a postage stamp in past years. They have also announced that a stamp in celebration of the Islamic religious holiday, Eid Mubarak, is being designed for the year 2001. Hindu's are requested to send e-mail to pmgceo@usps.gov.
