Merry Christmas 2017.
🇬🇧 British Christmas stamps from years past:-

Moving on from one international festival which stimulates the release of countless postage stamps and other philatelic products to another:-
🇸🇬 Singapore Post will issue a set of 3 stamps, 1 miniature sheet ('Collector's sheet'), 1 'My Stamp' sheetlet of 6 stamps (3 x 2 different stamps) with attached labels and 1 pack containing a different sheetlet on 5 January 2018. The issue will commemorate the Lunar new year, Year of the Dog. The issue was designed by Leo Teck Chong and lithographed by Cartor, the 'Collector's sheet' being additionally printed with photochromic ink and gold varnish. I expect that there will also be a self-adhesive local rate stamp issued in sheetlets of 10. Rating:- *****.
