This is a blog of my personal stamps and covers collection. I am an avid collector of postage stamps, miniature sheets, FDCs and covers addressed to me from across the world, an accumulator and hoarder of stamps. It is my attempt here to show you all of my collection in the posts that I'll add and update regularly. I hope to add more to the collection in the process, interact with you other collectors out there and share thoughts and information about anything and everything related.

Christmas Stamp Pack - Australia 2014
On October 31 earlier this year, Australia issued their annual Christmas stamps. The issue consists of two religious and four contemporary designs. The religious stamps are based on stained-glass windows in Melbourne’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral, which is both the tallest and the largest church building in Australia and one of the world’s largest Gothic revival 19th century churches comparable in size to St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York. The stamps depict two of the church’s many beautiful stained glass windows, showing the Nativity of Christ and the Flight into Egypt.
I received a nice package from Australia a day before Christmas day with this Stamp Pack in it. What you see below is the front and back of the pack followed by the Christmas stamps, all six issues and the minisheet of the year in it.
