Sri Lanka

Another country, stamps of which I really like. I am eagerly looking for all the stamp releases on Christmas that have been issued by Sri Lanka till date. Christmas stamps have been released almost every year in Sri Lanka unlike in India which has only one release of a Christmas se-tenant till date.

Ceylon became a republic within the British commonwealth on 22nd May, 1972 and changed its name to Sri Lanka.
