Royal Mail releases new stamps for Christmas

Feeling festive yet? Well you certainly will be once you see the new stamps that will be gracing your greetings cards this Christmas.
The Royal Mail has been issuing special Christmas stamps for the past 50 years - that's every year since 1966!

The idea is that they celebrate some of the main traditions that people enjoy at Christmas time. This year, they feature decorating the Christmas tree, making a snowman, hanging out the stocking, eating Christmas pudding and lighting a Christmas lantern.

The 2016 Christmas stamps were created by an artist in Manchester called Helen Musselwhite. She made them using paper cut-outs, which were then photographed.
