Take a Picture of Charlie Brown Characters

Photo with Charlie Brown

The Postal Service invites America to share in a series of holiday-themed augmented reality (AR) experiences that bring the nation’s 160,000 blue Post Office collection boxes to life via smartphones. The invitation is part of a mailing that provides information on exciting postal products, services and key mailing dates to make this the most convenient holiday mailing season ever.

The Peanuts photo opportunity debuts November 23-25 and appears again in mid-December as part of the Postal Service’s rotating “Mailbox Miracle” experiences that runs until December 28. Also, the 50th anniversary of the “Charlie Brown Christmas” TV special, from which the stamps are based, airs Monday, November 30, at 9 p.m. on ABC. Prior to that, at 8 p.m., a one-hour retrospective special featuring numerous music performers airs.

The ‘Mailbox Miracle’ Experiences

To experience the magic of the Peanuts gang, download the Postal Service’s AR app at Google Play or iTunes App Store. Open the app and point your phone’s camera at the USPS blue eagle logo on one of nearly 160,000 blue mail collection boxes between November 23 and November 25, and again December 14 through December 17, to see Charlie Brown characters surround Postal Service blue collection boxes. You can also take a photo with the Peanuts gang to save on your camera phone or share on social media.

As the nation counts down to the holidays, the Postal Service will be adding new experiences every few days.

Customers accessing usps.com can find blue collection boxes near their current location by visiting this link and clicking the “Post Offices and Approved Postal Providers” icon. Scroll down to collection boxes and then enter a ZIP Code or address.
