Christmas Seals 2020 - Full sheets for only GBP £3.68
The Christmas Seals 2020 tell the story of the first Christmas. How Joseph and Mary travelled from Nazareth to Bethlehem where Jesus was born and placed in a manger, because there was no room at the inn. The shepherd in the field and the three sages are also depicted on the seals.
The Christmas seals have a Faroese tinge, since the Faroese landscape is used as background and the attentive viewer immediately sees that Mary wears a Faroese sweater with the traditional star pattern and that Joseph wears a Faroese hat and a Faroese traditional coat. The shepherds in the field also wear Faroese hats and one of the sages wears the Faroese festive hat, called stavnhetta – a hat with two rising tips - and a long homespun traditional coat.All sale profits go to The Christmas Seal Foundation, which supports children and youth activities in the Faroe Islands.
