This Christmas sounds familiar. We all know the Christmas tunes ‘Jingle bells’ and ‘O Christmas tree’.

These two songs are the inspiration for this year’s bright and glittering Christmas stamps.

Sleigh bells and church bells are the first sounds that resonate with Christmas for most of us, and Estonian people have the centuries-old tradition of bringing a living tree indoors for the midwinter time – Christmas time.

Estonians have always been nature-loving people and thus bringing a fir tree home has been part of our desire to feel close to nature.

When a fir tree is brought inside, it becomes the heart of home, providing warmth during the dark winter months.

Families gather around this energy and, as a sort of thank you, they decorate the tree to make the source of joy sparkle even more. To make it light up. To make it shine.

This year’s Christmas stamps will send this sparkle and warmth to your close ones. Season’s greetings!
