12 Days of Christmas

Christmas, NewsI AM AComment

This is the first year that we have designed a Christmas Card collection. Bon voyage! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿป We snail mailed our Santa Christmas cards off and remembered an old collection of illustrated Christmas stamps we had.

This stamp collection is based on the lyrics of the Christmas carol โ€œ12 Days of Christmasโ€. The stamp collection included the illustrations of Five Golden Rings, Four Calling birds, Three French Hens, Two turtle doves, and of course a Partridge in a Pear Tree.

For more than 50 years, the Royal Mail releases stamps to celebrate festivities and events in the UK. Just last week, the Christmas stamps for this year have been released. (Yay!) In addition to stamps that have artwork featuring Madonna and Child, there are two stamps, a first class stamp that features Santa and his sleigh and a second class stamp that features a Snowman family.

Both of these stamps were illustrated by two children, selected from a national competition with over 200,000 entries. Itโ€™s a set of really cute illustrated stamps. They could be found on the Royal Mail website. We love them. It is only the 4th time in Royal Mailโ€™s 500 year history that children had designed Christmas stamps. We have just picked up some this afternoon for our Christmas post ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿ’Œ๐Ÿ“ฎ-
