Christmas 2009 'Tree Decorations' (view technical specs)

The 2009 Christmas stamps depict some beautiful tree decorations. The custom of erecting a Christmas tree and decorating it dates back 500 years to 16th Century Germany. Trees were originally decorated with candles to represent life in winter and light in darkness in much the same way as the birth of Jesus brings light and hope to humanity.
