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.
