Here is an interesting Parsi connection to the very first Diwali Stamp issued by the United States Postal Service.

The most-awaited Diwali Postal Stamp in recognition of Diwali festival for the Indian community in USA was ceremoniously launched on October 5th, 2016 at the Indian Consulate in New York City. The 15-year movement by Indian American leaders culminated in the official release of the Diwali Stamp by the US Postal Service.
