1313. 🇲🇾🇸🇭🇳🇿 World Post Day Stamps From Malaysia, Christmas From New Zealand And St Helena.

 🇲🇾 I do like the pair of stamps and miniature sheet which were issued by Pos Malaysia on 9 October 2018 to commemorate World Post Day. The issue was designed by Datuk Dr Mohammad Noor Awang. Rating:- *****.

  🇸🇭 No details yet that I have been able to find but I depict illustrations of a set of 4 stamps issued or about to be released by the St Helena postal service on the subject of the Festival of Lights which is hosted by Pilling Primary School as families, friends and schools come together to decorate floats so that they are covered in flashing lights. There is a parade through Georgetown which ends at the wharf where boats, lit up also, sail around the seafront. The local schoolchildren dress up like Christmas trees. Rating:- ****.

  🇳🇿 New Zealand Post will release its Christmas set on 7 November 2018. The rather unconvincing designs depict various characters from the Nativity and come as 5 gummed stamps, 1 miniature sheet containing all 5 stamps and 4 self-adhesive stamps of which the pair of $1.20c values are being sold from a box of 100 coil stamps as well as from booklets of 10 and the $2.40c and $3 values are sold from booklets of 10 both at a discounted price. The issue was designed by Saint Andrew Matautia and lithographed by Southern Colour Print and perforated 14. Rating:- ***.
