1973 Christmas stamp

German Stamp



Hungarian nativity stamp, 1943

UK Christmas stamp from a 1983 set of five.

It is not unusual to see leftover stamps appear on regular mail during the first months of the new year, Except in Australia where Christmas stamps are only valid during the holiday season and cannot be used for regular mail, but only Christmas cards. This is because the Australian Christmas stamp is valued 5c lower than regular postage stamps. Interesting!
