Winter Wonderland

What celebrator of Christmas doesn’t light up at the thought the holidays coming? With just the single mention of the joyous day, our eyes suddenly light up at the twinkle of the green, red, and white lights, icing decorative patterns of swirls around the rooftops and windows of all the houses. The smell of sweet, icy smoke is pouring from every chimney. You see fathers and sons, bundled up in their winter coats and boots and gloves and scarves and hats, chopping wood for the fireplace, their breath dancing in the air, above their work. Inside of every kitchen, there are all sorts of holiday goodies baking in the oven—sugar cookies, gingerbread men, cinnamon apple turnovers, pumpkin pies, roasted turkeys, sweet potatoes—almost anything you could imagine. Christmas records play as mothers and daughters snuggle together by the fire, drinking hot cocoa and cider, reading “The Night Before Christmas,” and eagerly awaiting bedtime, when they’re to close their eyes and wait for Santa Claus and his reindeer to come clip-clopping on the rooftop. The anticipation of a present-filled Christmas morning is the magical tranquilizer for children, and it only works on Christmas Eve, and requires only a warm, cozy bed, a goodnight kiss, and a big plate of milk and cookies for Santa. Oh, Christmas, how we dream of you so.

Spread the joy of the holiday season to everyone you know with our French “Meilleurs Voeux” (Best Wishes) Winter Holidays collection. These self-adhesive stamps feature joyous little penguins, reindeer, snowmen, and polar bears, all enjoying the fun of a winter wonderland. You can get them here, and start mailing out your Christmas cards, beginning with your letter to Mr. Claus!
