One of the best things about the holiday season is getting to see some of the festive stamps from around the world.

Here are this year’s holiday stamps from the country closest to the North Pole, Greenland:

From the artist:

greenlandxmaspolarbears“To me, Christmas means that you are together and having fun with those closest to you. In these busy times, Christmas is a breathing space in which we can remind ourselves that we should be thankful for the good things we have and the love we enjoy from our loved ones. Christmas is the time when the cold of winter is cancelled out by heart-felt warmth and caring for each other. These things I have tried to illustrate on the two Christmas stamps.”
