Merry Christmas

 An unexpected, large package arrived in yesterday's mail.

Look at all those stunning stamps! 

And this beautifully wrapped gift. 

Thank you,  Fafa, it was a lovely surprise, with perfect timing. 

Have a great Christmas, everyone. And if you don't celebrate, I hope you have a peaceful day.

Even more unusual animals

Eva alerted me to the fact that last year the Greek postal service issued a set of stamps featuring unexpected Christmas animals.

Surprise surprise, a sloth and a llama. Unicorns are everywhere, too, even on my Christmas tree. 

I wonder if this year there'll be a lot of Christmas flamingos?

Here's the fun minisheet:

Christmas sloth

Even more prevalent than the llama has been the Christmas sloth!

I sent him to Eric.

Fa la la la llama

There has been a proliferation of unusual animals in the past few Christmases... I present the Christmas llama - sent to Momkat last year.

Christmas bear

Polar bears are ubiquitous at this time of year - presumably due to their association with snow. 

Sent to Eva last Christmas.

Hot Cocoa

When better than to have hot cocoa than in December?

Sent to Heleen last Christmas. It was a bit slow to arrive and did not make it in time for Santa Claus.

Candy Cane

Now you can see why I posted one of these yesterday :)

This one was sent to Fabienne last Christmas.
