BOSTON (CBS/AP) — The Boston Children’s Museum and the U.S. Postal Service will host an event to celebrate the new series of Charlie Brown Christmas stamps.

The booklet of 20 stamps features 10 still frames from “A Charlie Brown Christmas,” the classic TV special that premiered 50 years ago, on Dec. 9, 1965. It was the first animated special featuring characters from Charles Schulz’s comic strip, “Peanuts.”

The new series will be unveiled Tuesday at 11 a.m. at Boston Children’s Museum. Children who attend will be able to design their own giant stamp and have their photo taken at the iconic Lucy Booth.
