Just a note - a number of countries issue a variety of stamps over the festive season - often a religiously themed stamps and something more secular as well, sometimes a mini sheet or a series etc.

This compilation above is merely my personal random selection of seasonal stamps.

Feel free to add or discuss others that you like by all means, but only the ones above are able to be voted on. :lol:

Cheers Margo
Hopefully we can add a new stamp each day until Christmas - starting with some from Portugal.

Started collecting Commonwealth Australian stamps. Then Australian kangaroo flaws. Then Australian pre-decimal flaws. Have now got my eye on worldwide birds, animals, gardening/backyards and engraved beauties. Oh, and maybe volcanoes. Who knows what tomorrow will bring :mrgreen:

I love the design of this stamp. Not so sure about the gimmick! Issued on 22 Oct 2019, this Star of Bethlehem stamp from Portugal is the world’s first postage stamp with an LED (in the star).

The LED can be activated via a mobile phone that has NFC (Near Field Communication) technology.

I find several of the design not appealing at all, but here are some of the better ones:

1) Croatia
2) Gibraltar
3) Andorra

Good News Stampboarders!

Well good news for us - not so good for Margo and Glen, who have had the misfortune of being stuck in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands, in the Bay of Bengal, over Christmas, where there is effectively zero internet.

That means we can get our votes in until they re-reach civilisation to announce a winner. Good Luck with your votes!
