An Post reveal six new Christmas stamps including a Toy Show one
Not long now...
An Post has revealed the new 2018 Christmas Stamp collection, featuring some of Ireland’s favourite festive moments and traditions.
For the very first time, included in the festive stamps are Christmas favourites including watching The Late Late Toy Show, eating traditional Christmas Dinner and attending Midnight Mass.
The selections were chosen by the people of Ireland by way of a public vote.
Earlier this year, An Post invited everyone to have their say on the modern Irish Christmas moments they would most like to see on the new 2018 Christmas Stamp collection.
From the many entries they received, the votes were whittled down online until the six winners were chosen.
- A family watching The Late Late Toy Show
- People making their way to Midnight Mass
- Meeting loved ones at the airport
- A visit to the local crib
- A child getting ready for Santa’s arrival on Christmas Eve
- A Christmas dinner with turkey, sprouts and all the trimmings
Commenting on the launch of the first Late Late Toy Show stamp, presenter Ryan Tubridy, said: "The whole Toy Show team are delighted that the public have voted for the show to be included on the new stamps and that it’s such a special family tradition at Christmas.
"We have such fun putting the show together and it’s really rewarding to get this type of response.
"I believe there is nothing nicer than receiving a letter or card in the post, particularly at this time of year, so I encourage everyone to get posting this Christmas."
