2011, Nov. 22: This beautiful set of christmas stamps is a wonderful representation of the season there. Makes you want to be in Switzerland in one of those quaint Zermatt chalets, it's pathways lined with snow, the clean and crisp mountain air and a roaring fire and star-lit sky.

Finally the semi-postals stocked separately .
