New Christmas 2012 Stamps:Finland

\"\"Finland has issued Christmas stamps with two seasonal themes: Christmas tree and stable lantern on 5th Nov 2012. The themes of the sheets might be traditional, but the design is all new.

The Christmas Tree stamp comes in a triangular sheet that doubles as an impressive Christmas decoration. Thanks to its special fold, the 20-stamp sheet stands upright like a miniature Christmas tree. The Stable Lantern stamp creates the peaceful mood of expectation that is the heart of the Christmas season. The Stable Lantern stamp, sold in sheets of 10, is 1st class. The stamp sheet comes with Christmas-themed Priority labels which can be used for both international Christmas greetings and domestic 1st class cards and letters.
