Well the Christmas cards are written and posted.
I often think that I won't send cards, with all the waste and cost etc but then I weigh up how much I like receiving cards, the joy of actually getting something in the post and connecting with family and friends and it seems worthwhile. And while I was writing them I got to thinking about the lovely Christmas stamps that appear each year, like little miniature artworks
There seems to be a trend in recent years to offer both religious and secular stamps both beautiful in their own right.
And a quick google search turned up lots of beautiful stamps from previous years.
It is too late and I'm too tired (writing this post late yesterday and scheduling it for the morning) to write much more about them...
But I loved seeing this image of King Wenseslas pop up from 1966 because I remember it so vividly... it was the result of a competition I believe and designed by a child but it was also the first year that commemorative Christmas srtamps were issued in the UK.
