Every year, the Royal Mail bring out the new Christmas stamps. They alternative between a religious themed set and a secular set. 2019’s Christmas stamps take a religious approach, bringing the nativity story alive. I quite like the style of this year’s collection. There are eight different stamps in the collection. It is very colourful, featuring beautiful paper-cut art and illustrations. You may have already seen these around but I wanted to share them with you, in case you hadn’t.
As a child, I never really got to write a letter to Santa. It just was not something that I did – or believed in. Over the years, however, I have seen so much excitement of believing in Santa. It is very sweet how excited children can get. They are even more excited when they receive a letter from Santa in reply.
Now I don’t think Christmas is about receiving gifts – not at all. In fact, we started doing Secret Santa at work, I usually didn’t get anything. Christmas for me is about giving. That could be giving a gift, helping others or just giving your time to your loved ones. But I really do love seeing how excited children get for Christmas and I love the fact that writing a letter to Santa actually encourages children to write more letters.
Letterwriting is a great habit to get into and if writing letters to Santa is the way to get people into it then I am all for that.
I’ve spoken quite a bit about sending letters and post. I have not, however, covered the stamp part of a post. Stamps are something that I adore looking at. It’s so interesting to see the different stamps that different countries have. I love receiving international post just to see what their stamps are like. However, the Royal Mail group have some incredible designs themselves. I honestly am contemplating collecting stamps more often. That was something I have not really done before but with the vast collections that I see these days that I adore, I kind of want to. I have a few sheets that I have saved but not really a huge collection of them.
As you may know, Royal Mail regularly release themed stamps. February’s theme was Leonardo da Vinci. It captured some really great moments and drawings of his. I love the writings and texts on the stamps, making them look a bit more vintage. However, March’s theme completely floored me. It vastly differs from February but it’s so great. If you haven’t already seen them… You can now order Marvel stamps! Yes, that’s right, Marvel. They were released yesterday and are now in stock to buy.
