Happy Easter! 5.3.2012
The stamp was designed for Easter greetings, and in fact it was published on 5th March, has a funny cartoon-like design. It was be published as a booklet of 10 self-adhesive stamps entitled Happy Easter! The stamp designed by Illustrator Janne Harju depicts a chick and a bunny painting on an Easter egg. Happy Easter from Chicken and Rabbit! They are painting a huge egg with catkin and a tail. 1st class self-adhesive stamp. On the FDC envelope you can see an Easter witch. It is a popular character in the Nordic Easter tradition. Today, they are most often represented as scarf-clad women riding a broom, accompanied by a black cat and a copper coffee pot. My friend Ella gave me this FDC and the maxicard show alongside.
