0902 CHRISTMAS (Luxembourg) - Frohe Weihnachten

Frohe Weihnachten means "Merry Christmas" in German, but I believe that also in Luxembourgish, two of the three administrative languages of Luxembourg (the third is French). The vivid and bright colors delight the eye and gladden the soul, and the onion-shaped domes and the ogee arches leads my mind to the stories of One Thousand and One Nights.

About the stamps
The first stamp is one of the three of a series issued on March 17, 2009, and dedicated to the firefighters.

The second is one of the two issued on November 26, 2013, for Christmas.

The third is part of the serie issued on October 1, 2001, containing the  5-, 10-, 20-, 50-cent, 1-, and 2-euro postage stamps, depicting coins with the same denominations.

  1. The stamps are nice but the card itself is even more special. Love the beautiful colors.

  2. The card image reminds me of churches in Russia or Eastern Europe. The ornament stamp is wonderful too. Thank you for joining us this week.

  3. What a sweet card, love the starry peacock.
