Since ancient times, people have associated plants with various festivals. The tradition persists today and these new stamps thus feature Christmas plants. Yet another Christmas decoration of ancient lineage is mistletoe. This parasitic plant was associated with Celtic religious ceremonies. Today, people hang it up at Christmas and exchange kisses underneath it. Québec painter Claude A. Simard, who has a keen interest in horticulture, has chosen an original way to illustrate the annual Christmas stamp series. By deftly combining the warm reds, greens and golds of traditional Christmas plants and accessories, he has managed to infuse each stamp with the festive atmosphere of the holidays.
