Go on, humour me and tell me which Christmas stamp you like best of all. Maybe even include a pic? You can read about mine on my blog here.

Merry Christmas!

I've put a big comment on Adrian's blog, but couldn't illustrate it, so here are the illustrations:

Number 3

Number 2

And as for Number 1, I agree with Adrian, so you'll have to go see what he decided!

My favorite Christmas stamps, since childhood in fact, have always been the USA 1963 issue and the Australian 1964 stamp. I really love to see a big 'ol well lit Christmas tree and think that the USA stamp, showing a tree in front of the White House, is quite stunning as a display of public celebration of the spirit of Christmas. The Australia stamp is more sentimental, showing the awe kids feel at this special time. My favorite British Christmas stamp is the 1983 one with a cat on a roof as above it sparkle the midnight stars.

Oh no, Julia, your number 3 is horrid! I like your number 2 though!

And I like your US stamp, Alex. It reminded me that the US has issued a lot of clean, simple Christmas stamps. My favourite US set is the 1964 set. Very nice.

And here's the 1983 GB Christmas stamp.

That is quite a nice stamp and set as well, yes. Not sure if everyone will agree with this particular colour scheme though (ducks).

Hmmm, I must admit that most Canada Post Christmas offerings have left me ho-hum, with a few exceptions.

In 2003 they did a series like this one, which I like because the gift is outside the frame:

Then in 2009, they did a beautiful religious set based on the sculptures of Antonio Caruso:

And to note this year, they've done some beautiful stained glass windows taken from St. mary's Cathedral which is right here in my own (beautiful) town of Kingston, Ontario, just one block down from Bethel Church, where I work:

COOL, huh?!
