I have received one of them this year, although it was sadly disfigured by the dreaded biro.
There are a couple of countries that issued some stamps that I like (and will certainly never receive).
From Norway, this wonderful 3D scene. [Eva, it made me think of you :) ]
And this really unusual and, to me, outstanding ones from Luxembourg. They are titled Mr Winter Joy and Mrs Ice Crystal. I can only imagine the outcry if these were issued in the US :)
For more Christmas postage, check out the links at Sunday Stamps. And have yourself a great Christmas!
I've got some of those from the UK some of those from the UK, with and without biro, and also in the form of postcards, so I can enjoy the bigger illustration. Actually, I keep receiving them, and updating the post :DReplyDelete
Some Christmas mail arrive after Christmas every year...
The stamps from Norway and Luxembourg mean certainly a change! I love the designs (I am almost sure I'm not receiving them neither, alas). I like that Spain issues a classic stamp for Christmas, but I wouldn't mind something different one of these years... Well, the classic is for the A-rate (within Spain). The B-rate, again, is rather dull (have you got my postcard with it?).
Your Christmas postcard has not arrived yet - I would have liked to include the stamp today. I feel like the mail has been even slower than normal at this time of year with a lot of delays for letters and packages. Hopefully it will turn up next week.Delete
Wow, I sent it on 7th December... I hope it is not lost in way! :(Delete
I hope so, too, since your letter posted a few days later arrived yesterday. I posted. my mother's card Dec 2nd, and it didn't arrive until Dec 20th. I was getting worried!Delete
Perhaps it will arrive on Christmas Eve :)
And now I realise that actually I sent you TWO postcards on 7th December! Well, let's be patient... :)Delete
J'aime beaucoup les timbres de Grande Bretagne et de Norvège ! J'espère qu'il n’y pas de "Christmas mail monsters" qui ont mangé ma "gingerbread house letter " postée en Novembre dernier ! Thank's a lot for your two last letters !ReplyDelete
Christmas isn't over yet :)Delete
It seems that the stamps are made of adhesive tracing paper (https://timbredujura.blogspot.com/2018/12/christmas-and-new-year-greetings-cards.html). How cool!ReplyDelete
So some of the envelope shows through the design? Nice!Delete
Those Luxembourg stamps are a mystery to me - but oh so fun to look at!ReplyDelete
(her tumbler account shows these, and other very similar works, in clear detail)
Do you know the link to the Tumblr page?Delete
I love the Norwegian scene and the Luxembourg ones are striking and suitably frostlike, I like his gingerbread man earing.ReplyDelete
He's got a lot going on, hasn't he!Delete
The only stamp from overseas this year came to me from Norway, Unfortunately it depicted a lighthouse - I would have preferred your marvellous stamp.ReplyDelete
I wonder which Eva would prefer - the lighthouse or the Christmas scene.Delete
But... why can't I have both? ;-)Delete
