Christmas stamps 6.11.2015
Posti and Ella wish all a Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year with these pretty stamps. Thank you Ella.
Christmas traditions live on in the city
Many Finns today spend their Christmas in cities, following their own family traditions. This is why this year's Christmas stamps, designed by graphic designer Klaus Welp, feature urban Christmas celebrations.
The landscape-oriented stamp Reflection depicts a child looking at the reflection given off by a mirrored Christmas ornament hanging on a Christmas tree.
The portrait-oriented first-class stamp Christmas Street shows a father and child on the way to pick up a Christmas tree in the city, pulling the tree in a sled through the snowy streets.
In both stamps, Klaus Welp has included a bright star shining above the city to remind us of the fundamental meaning of Christmas.
