Description

In making special Christmas stamps available for the prepayment of postage during the festive season the Canada Post office followed a practice established as an annual tradition in 1964. The 1969 issues, first Canadian Christmas stamps produced in full colour, provide recognition of the multi-racial structure of nation's population. It is generally accepted that in 1843 J.C. Horsley, of London, England, designed the first Christmas card; the greeting, one thousand of which were printed, was a stiff card lithographed in sepia tones and hand coloured with dimensions slightly in excess of 5" x 3". The concept of Christmas charity was represented on inside panels of the folding card to convey the traditonal thought of remembering those less fortunate than ourselves. The principal illustration, a family party above the words A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to You remains, in varied forms, the basic approach on many greeting cards to this day.
