About Stamp Series

This marks the 55th year that Canada Post has issued special, themed stamps to adorn the holidays. These latest designs strike a nostalgic note and conjure up vivid memories of all things shiny and bright during the festive season.

The issue, which includes stamps at the PermanentTM domestic (reindeer), U.S. (dancers) and international (partridge) rates, was designed by Andrew Lewis. His inspiration for the luminous set came from fond memories, as a child, opening holiday greeting cards from overseas relatives.

“I found the card illustrations charming, and the stamp designs captured the true essence of the holidays. Those lovely memories embody the emotions I still feel about sending warm greetings to those near or far,” he explains. “My illustrations are simply about the illumination of light and love, which is, in my heart, what the holidays are all about.”

The issue includes a booklet of 12 Permanent domestic rate stamps, six-stamp booklets at the U.S. and international rates, a three-stamp souvenir sheet, and an Official First Day Cover cancelled in Val-Brilliant, Quebec – to reflect its theme.

We hope these festive stamps make your holiday mail more festive.
