Collecting Christmas stamps



This year's Christmas stamps were designed by Ms Katriina Viljamaa-Rissanen. The 2.50 mk stamp, specially denominated for Christmas cards, features "Tiernapojat", the players in a traditional Finnish Christmas tableau.


The stamps featuring mice in red caps were drawn by graphic designer Marjo Nygard-Niemisto. The mice are known to the Finnish public from works including the poetry book Kuono kohti tahtea, the illustrator of which, Marjo Nygard-Niemisto, won the 2005 Finlandia Junior prize. (set of 2)


The 60 cent stamp mainly for Christmas cards shows a big and a small bear wadering through a snowy forest: they are getting their Christmas tree. (Set of 2, self-adhesive)
