Winter Holidays Stamps

Sunday Stamps - II suggested today Christmas (secular). Actually, most of the Christmas stamps I am receiving are related with the non-religious aspects of this holidays.

According to them, the most important things in winter and/or Christmas are
a) Enjoying the snow,
b) Killing a tree (I am not going to do this!),
c) Sending letters.

From Italy



From the Netherlands




From the United Kingdom






From the USA




Update: I have received two more! (Thanks, Bryon!)


Update 2: (See also this envelope!)

  1. What a wonderful compilation / abstract!
    Great stamps as well - I had never seen the Charlie Brown stamps before, even though I get mail from the USA rather regularly :-| So I'm happy and enjoying to see them here :-)

    1. I'm sure you're going to receive some of them. As FinnBadger wrote, I'd like I could use postage from other countries too!

      I bet you're not going to kill any tree either... ;-)

  3. És curiós que associem Nadal amb neu també a llocs on no neva mai per Nadal.

    1. No ho diràs per Boston! ;-)
      No sé si era l'any passat, hi havia certa discussió sobre un segell australià on apareixia el Pare Noel fent surf i bevent combinats (dic jo que sense alcohol) a la platja.

  4. Oh dear, I rather like having a real tree... not that I do have one. And they are grown especially for Christmas on tree farms (at least in my area they are).
    Once again, a lovely series of stamps. And I agree - most of the ones I have are not of the religious sort!

    1. Maybe you're right about trees... There is all kind of tress and, of course, this is also a business (I mean, necessary for some people). I guess buying one of these trees is like eating a chicken...

      Apart from the tree, I hope you will also enjoy the snow and the letters :)

  5. Fine selection. This year the UK stamps have a religious theme. If I had to pick a favourite stamp from the ones you've shown us I would plump for the two penguins.

    1. I've got one of the UK Christmas stamps of 2015. I'm going to publish it next week.

  6. Penguins are popular at Christmas too, how did that happen. Letters with lots of stamps are a present in themselves.

    1. Me too, I don't know why we associate penguins to Christmas. Maybe because of the snow. But it seems this year isn't going to snow in Christmas...
