Royal Mail have unveiled their Christmas stamps for Christmas 2009 and feature religious pictures depicted in stained glass windows.

The Christmas stamps feature the work of Pre-Raphaelite artists William Morris, Sir Edward Burne-Jones and Henry Holiday.

The stamps were designed by Andrew Ross after he researched hundreds of photographs of stained glass windows from around the country, before deciding upon the final set of images from the 19th century.

Speaking about the new stamps, Royal Mail’s Head of Special Stamps, Julietta Edgar said:

“We are extremely privileged to have access to such a rich history of beautiful stained glass designs in churches and other buildings around the UK,”

“These precious images of the nativity have a timeless appeal and are a wonderful way of telling the story of Christmas here and around the world.”

The Christmas 2009 stamps will be on sale in post offices throughout the UK from November 3rd 2009.

    Why have Royal Mail not given the recommended postal dates for international Christams mail this year?
    I know there are no leaflets in the post offices and it is impossible to find the dates easily on your website. Please can you pass this feedback on your website back to the relevent manager.
    With thanks,

    I agee with Susan Martlew comments and will buy these delightful stamps that reflect our traditional Christmas

    Last year I had to insist on having Christmas themed stamps
    (Virgin &Baby) as my local post office had been told not to sell them unless customers requested them.

    Congratulations to those who have now had the common sense to depict in our Christmas stamps 2009 what this country is, and should continue to be, a Christian Country. It is felt that this is long overdue by many but as an old adage states “Better late than never” but it should have been Better never late!

    It is a great pleasure to be able to use these Christmas stamps this year, depicting the true and real meaning of Christ-mas. Without Christ, Christmas is meaningless, and with Christ we have the True Gift of a Loving and forgiving God. Our Country has thrived on the True Christian Gospel and is falling by the wayside by rejecting it. It is good to return to our Christian Heritage.
