The New Year's Eve theme for Sunday Stamps is night scenes.
Based on how bright this lighthouse is shining, I'm going to go with at least twilight on this stamp, which luckily arrived yesterday - Canada Post knocked it out of the park with this design. Also, I had no idea how large the stamp was until I received one - perfect to spot all the little details.
To finish up a postal (mis)adventure, here is the conclusion to my story that started on this post.
I mailed four large envelopes (or 'flats' in USPS-speak) to the UK, France, Netherlands and Spain on Dec 1. The one to the UK was returned to me on Dec 11 with a label saying it needed a customs label, while the others reached their destinations. Well, as soon as I added the customs label, that meant the flat was now a package, so I had to add about $11 to the original amount (shown below). The amazing news is that, in spite of some really slow travel times to Europe in December, it arrived in 10 days, just in time for Christmas.
Two of the Woodland Animal stamps are night scenes - the rabbit and the owl. Interestingly, I have received several rabbits and foxes, but neither of the others in my holiday mail.

Have a safe and fun New Year's Eve celebration, and best wishes to everyone for 2024.
