2016 Finland Christmas stamp

This stamp came with the most recent letter I received from my pen friend Tuija. Inside the envelope came a strip of paper with the information about the stamp:

In response to public demand, Itella Posti Oy published Santa Claus' very own special stamp.

The Joulun Taika (the Magic of Christmas) stamp is based on  Antti Kurola's impressive photograph. In the magical picture, Santa Claus is throwing snow into the air with both hand. Behind the snow-covered spruce tree forest is the city of Rovaniemi. This is considered as the Christmas city in Finland.

  1. Such a fun stamp (as with so many Finnish stamps - does this mean the Finns themselves are as much fun?). The snow thrown up looks like magic dust.

  2. The snow thrown up imparts a Christmas sparkle to this stamp.
