Celebrating Christmas in Switzerland. Four new festive stamps released by Swiss Post

The stamps depict four traditional attributes of Christmas that always contributes to the festive mood. These are a fir-tree, a snowman, a sledge and a tiny angel. Let’s appreciate this philatelic issue together!

The evening of 24 December, is very much a family celebration in Switzerland. This is the evening when small children get to see the decorated and lit tree in all its splendour for the first time, complete with wrapped gifts underneath.

In Switzerland, it is not uncommon to have candles rather than electric lights on the tree. Unfortunately, there is the occasional accident involving burning trees. Electric lights decorating Swiss Christmas trees usually emit a warm yellowish light, rather than the blinking coloured lights often seen in the United States and Britain.

Traditionally, children in Catholic areas were told that the presents were brought by the Christkind (German), Le petit Jésus (French), or Gesu Bambino. But these days, children are just as familiar with the character almost universally recognised as Santa Claus.
