Throughout many countries in the world, Christmas is a time of celebration and for honouring the ideals of peace, joy, hope and happiness.
Modern Christmas folklore tells the story of Santa Claus and his faithful reindeer, driving his sleigh through the night on Christmas Eve, delivering gifts to good boys and girls all over the world.
The 2014 Christmas Stamp & Coin Cover celebrates the story of Santa Claus and his reindeer.
