Christmas Mail 2012 - 5

Oleg sent me this cover with one of the two recent Christmas stamp issues of 2012. Thanks Oleg for the lovely cover. Earlier this year he had sent me one with the 2010 Christmas issue.

Latvia Post has been releasing stamps dedicated to Christmas since 1992, and two new additions to the series are made this year.

The design of the new stamps draws on traditional Christmas themes – a Christmas tree and gifts hidden under it and a winter scene with a house surrounded by fir trees covered with snow and a snowman, which is on the cover here. The new stamps were designed by artist Lilija Dinere.
