2. Speaking of death and the dead ...

"On Sept. 14, Canada Post unveiled its second of three sets of Haunted Canada stamps. Recalling popular Canadian ghost stories, this series shines a spectral light on dark tales from throughout the land. Each of the five stamps focuses on a supernatural site, with images made extra eerie through the use of holographic foil."
