About Stamp

Canada Post Corporation's final set in its Christmas series honouring Yuletide personages from around the world makes its début on November 4, 1993. The 38¢ Greet More stamp depicts the North American Santa Claus, while other Yuletide gift-givers include Swiety Mikolaj and Gwiazdka, from Poland (43¢ domestic rate), Russia's Ded Moroz (49¢ USA rate) and Father Christmas from Australia (86¢ international rate). Australian's "Santa" is quite the character! Despite the heat of the Australian summer, he travels in the traditional fur-trimmed red suit, often in the company of koalas and kangaroos, against a backdrop of a well-known landmark or landscape. He finishes his gift-giving just in the time to enjoy a beautiful Australian summer.
