Best Christmas Stamps

It is not uncommon for countries to use cultural icons on their Christmas stamps.   One of the best examples are the Christmas stamps produced by Royal Mail that illustrate Wallace and Grommit celebrating the holidays.  They clearly put one in a festive spirit.

Here is a beautiful stamp from Luxembourg.

The simplicity of this design is fairly spectacular

In Australia, they issued a series of bird stamps linked with Christmas Island

Again from Australia, a set of stamps relating to Santa.

If you have other links send them on and I will add them to to the post
