Canada Post unveils this year’s holiday-themed stamps

 

Now that Halloween is over, it's time to start thinking about the winter holidays.

Once again, following a tradition that has been going strong since 1964, Canada Post has released a pair of holiday-themed stamps to help Canadians make their mail more festive.

This year, Canadians have a choice of four stamps--one that features religious imagery, and three that features imagery that is more secular.

This year's Christmas-themed stamp is inspired by the traditional nativity scene, and features Mary, Joseph and the infant Jesus.
