Christmas Stamps Pack 2013 - Australia

Another pack received in my mail today. This one is a stamp pack of the 2013 christmas stamps and mini-sheet from Australia.



Printed on the back of the pack:
This year's Christmas stamps combine a modern with a more traditional approach. The two stamps in the minisheet depict the biblical story of how shepherds were "out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night". An angel appeared, bringing "good news of a great joy": Christ the lord was born in Bethlehem. The shepherds are shown adoring the child who is in his mother Mary's arms, watched over by Joseph. The other four stamps are a more modern interpretation of the festive season.
