It is Christmas Season...

What a nice cover to start off receipt of christmas covers this year!! This one is from Alaska, USA. Antoinette sent me this cover and a FDC for which I cant thank her enough. Don't miss the cancellation on the cover. It says Happy Holidays and has got Santa riding his reindeer drawn sleigh. And the stamps are the complete set of four stamps depicting Christmas baubles issued by the USPS this Christmas.

Here's the back of the cover

And this is the FDC sponsored by the Anchorage Philatelic Society. The idea of doing a hand-coloured cover came from chairperson, David Schwantes. The cachet for this cover was produced from an original pen and pencil drawing by Leroy Plum, a retired military veteran from Anchorage.
