It's that time again when postal services around the world issue their new Christmas Stamps. This year because there are so many Christmas Stamps Issues, we decided to cover three different countries with our last Christmas newsletter for the year. Each country Christmas stamps and specification are listed below.

Sweden issued a four stamp se-tenant set designed by Olof Baldursdottir and named "Gnome Chores" on the 11th of November 2004. The stamps depict famous children book characters known as gnomes. Each stamp size is 31.25 x 26.60mm and was printed using the 4 color Offset printing process by Sweden Post Stamps, Stockholm.
