Postage Stamp of the Week: Phantom of the Opera

Mmm, October. My favorite month.

I love the changing seasons, the falling leaves, the overlap of baseball and football seasons, the back-to-school atmosphere, and especially Halloween -- bats, cats, witches, skeletons, ghosts, and jack o' lanterns everywhere... I also love the classic movie monsters associated with the holiday, like Lon Chaney's silent Phantom of the Opera, seen here on this 1997 stamp... Stay tuned for more cool Halloween stamps throughout the month.

And, BWT, I'm not one of those pretentious twits who write "Hallowe'en." Thank you.

When I was in the Navy, we had "ghost shitters." Unclaimed dooks would show up randomly in shower stalls in the middle of the night. Not limited to the month of October.
