Canada Post combines whimsical holiday Canadiana with a traditional sacred Christmas image in this year’s holiday stamps offering. These beautifully designed stamps will add a special touch of holiday joy to cards and letters sent across the country and beyond.
Animals have often been featured on Canadian Christmas stamps, but never quite like this. In portrait-style illustrations, the trio appear in a whimsical holiday wardrobe. A majestic bull moose wearing a red scarf and toque graces the permanent domestic stamp. On the U.S.-rate stamp, a grinning beaver in a flannel shirt and flat cap playfully sports a sprig of holly in his mouth. On the international-rate stamp, a polar bear braces for the cold with a stylish red cap, scarf and sweater. A clothing detail extends beyond the frame of each stamp, adding a three-dimensional touch.
