Christmas stamps of Canada. It was not until 1964 that Canada commenced a regular run of Christmas stamps. Until 1969, a set of 2 stamps were issued, all of which I have as you can see below. I am missing the very first Christmas stamps of Canada which are supposedly the world's first Christmas stamps too, the 1898 Mercator map stamps inscribed Xmas 1898, in my collection.

In 1970, a set of 12 stamps on Children's drawings was issued. I've left gaps for the two missing stamps from this set. There are gaps I've left for all the other missing stamps too.
