Merry Christmas

I would like to dedicate the post of today to the spirit of Christmas and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a merry Christmas if this celebration means anything for you.
For this I have selected a gift that I have received from the postal administration of Finland. This is a large card picturing a very jovial Santa Claus!
Two stamps are present on the picture side of the card. These are the two stamps issued on the 5th of November bu the Finish post and picturing the same Santa Claus and a reindeer, two very popular symbols of Chritsmas.
The other side of the card contains another stamp issued at the same time.

The stamp, designed by the same designer than the two other ones, Tommi Vallisto, pictures the lanscape of Lapland a region of Finland loctaed within the Arctic circle. The stamp pictures the place during Kaamos, the polar night, the night that lasts more than 24 hours!
A very nice gift I think.
Merry Chistmas to all.
