    **** While the Christmas Seal is not a postage stamp, it has long been associated with the postal service for its use on letters and packages.
    - Einar Holboell, an employee of the Danish Post Office, created the Christmas Seal believing that seal sales could raise money for charity. The post offices of Denmark, Iceland, and Sweden first began to sell such seals in the 1904 Christmas season.
    Christmas Seals were first issued in the United States starting in 1907.
    Issued by the American National Red Cross (1907-1919)
    Issued by the National Tuberculosis Association (1920-1967)
    The National Tuberculosis & Respiratory Disease Assoc. (1968-1972)
    Issued by the American Lung Association (1973 to present)
