This Is A Stick Up!

The new Christmas Stamps for 2015 have just been revealed by the Post Office. For some time now, the annual designs have alternated between sacred and secular imagery. The PO Website tells us that “this is a religious year” – so here they are

I do like the 2nd class stamp [in fact, I think they are all rather good]


Whilst I post fewer and fewer cards each Christmas, I like to have a good stock of the nativity stamps, to use all through the year!


  1. These are nice. The best ever I think.


  2. They would make lovely little Christmas cards wouldn't they although I am guessing they'd be rather expensive if you used the parcel ones!

  3. How refreshing. I shall see if our local PO has them.

  4. I love them, too ! Wish our post office thought it was "a religious year". Personally, I think every year is a religious year.....

  5. I like those stamps! Yeah, for the postal service!


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
