Two of the three stamps on the cover are Christmas issues. This year Australia post issued five Christmas stamps, two of which present the traditional Christmas story. I don't know why, but I usually prefer the traditional Christmas stamps. A little more waiting I guess before I get my hands on the entire set.
The other three stamps in the issue are non-religious. Here on the cover are two. The brightly coloured, celebratory subjects are suggestive of familiar Christmas carols "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas", "Jingle Bells" and "Ding Dong Merrily on High".
