Portugal unveil Christmas issue: Religious imagery takes center stage

The Portugal Philatelic Bureau have revealed the designs for their Christmas issue. Unlike many other countries, Portugal have opted for religious imagery rather than festive.

The issue consists of four stamps featuring paintings of the baby Jesus and will be released on 19th November. The decision to use religious paintings on the stamps is in sharp contrast with the majority of Postal Administrations, who have mainly used images of Santa, snow and kids opening presents in their designs.
