A Traditional Christmas

Ruth Palmer creates a set of nostalgic seasonal stamps for Jersey Post.

 The Christmas stamps are reminiscent of decades gone by and have just been issued by Jersey Post. Set in the 1950s and 1960s, the artworks depict a traditional festive activity including bringing home the Christmas tree, making the Christmas cake and carol singing; things that bring the family together.

Melanie Gouzinis, Head of Philatelic at Jersey Post, reflects, “Of course, most of these traditions are still going strong today but Ruth Palmer’s interpretation reminds us of the time before computers and mobile phones, when families wore their Sunday best for Christmas dinner and festive patterned jumpers were worn in a non-ironic way!”

The stamps are available to buy here.
