The five stamps feature Mary and Joseph with baby Jesus, shepherds tending their flocks nearby, the angel sharing news of the birth of Jesus and the three wise men.

Five Christmas stamps for 70c - $2.90 denominations.

The stamps are available in PostShops in various denominations for international and domestic mailing.
