Easter 8.3.2013

The 2013 Easter stamp features a brightly colored rooster that carries a willow catkin in his beak and has an Easter egg at his feet. TheEaster Rooster stamp sheet, designed by Katja Saario and released on 8.3.2013, contains ten 1st class stamps. According to the Finnish Easter tradition, it is the rooster that lays chocolate eggs and hides them for the children to find on Easter Sunday. In church art, the rooster is a symbol of vigilance and endurance, and it stands on the top of the bell tower of many churches. 

Thank you Ella for this lovely FDC.
