Day of the Dead Forever Stamps



EL PASO, TX — The U.S. Postal Service commemorates the Day of the Dead, an increasingly popular holiday in the United States, with the release of four new Forever stamps. A dedication ceremony for the stamps was held today at the El Paso Museum of Art.

Once a celebration largely unknown outside of Mexico, Día de los Muertos has gone mainstream in the United States.


Today the holiday’s symbols – especially ornate sugar skull designs – adorn everything from U.S. postage stamps to classic Vans sneakers. Even Ken and Barbie can be seen sporting traditional calaca (skeleton) costumes and Target sells merchandise for the day.


“Movies like [Pixar’s 2017] Coco made people more familiar with the holiday, but they aren’t as familiar with the meaning behind the rituals and the importance of Día de los Muertos in our culture,” said Axel Caballero, a 2023 Rutgers-New Brunswick graduate and past president of the Mexican-American Student Association (MASA).


The Day of the Dead pane of 20 stamps are now available at Post Office locations nationwide. 


“In recent decades, Day of the Dead has caught on in the United States as a festive celebration for all ages,” said Michael J. Elston, secretary of the USPS Board of Governors, who served as the dedicating official. “These new stamps from the U.S. Postal Service provide a wonderful way to commemorate this colorful and life-affirming holiday.”
