XMAS - 1991-2009 Powered By Docstoc
					         Christmas has been around for over a hundred years – Christmas on stamps that is. Ever since the
words ‘Xmas 1898’ appeared on an issue from Canada, over 150 countries have issued stamps to honor
this holiday. Due to the high volume of stamps, in 1989, the American Topical Association asked Dorothy
Henderson, then President of the Christmas Philatelic Club (CPC), to recommend someone to compile a
list of Christmas stamps, which they could add to their collection of Topical CHECKLISTS. Everleigh (Ev)
Foster (CPC #179), with the assistance of James (Jim) Bie (CPC #876) undertook the task, which took two
and a half years to complete. It was published by the ATA in 1991 and listed every stamp (each with its
own individual description) from 159 countries, from the earliest date of 1898 until 1990. It is currently still
available from the ATA as "Christmas Stamps of the World" -- ATA Handbook 120.

       After 1990, an annual update was submitted by Mr. Foster and published in bi-monthly issues of
CPC's newsletter, the YULE LOG. This continued until his death in 2000. After his passing, Christina
Howland-Stitt (CPC #810) took over the task that had proven so helpful to Christmas stamp collectors. It is
unfortunate that circumstances prevented Christina from being able to continue the work she had so ably
undertaken.

         The current updates -- from 1991 on -- are now done by Patricia Prevey CPC #971. These have
incorporated information taken from YULE LOG issues since the last entry in Ev Foster's "Christmas
Stamps of the World", after which recent issues by country as they appear in Scott Magazine
Monthly are used as the basis for the updated list appearing on this web site. The number of countries
has increased from 159 to over 180. The difference can be attributed to the fact that some countries have
discontinued issuing Christmas stamps, while others, such as those created through the break-up of the
USSR, have begun issuing stamps as independent nations. This current update is not as definitive as the
first compilation, having group numbering and descriptions rather than individual ones. On-line users are
