The first shows a father and his son (son and daughter in the Large version) making their way home in the snow having picked up their Christmas.

On the second a robin sits on top of a post box, watching as two children (accompanied by another child in the Large version) pop in their Christmas cards.

The third depicts a newly-built snowman, sporting a carrot nose and hat and scarf in traditional red and green Christmas colours, with a boy completing the construction by adding a twig arm.

Then there is carol singing – a family sing a festive song as the snow tumbles gently down.

In the final stamp, a mother and daughter skate together hand in hand on a frozen pond with a suitably festive backdrop of pine trees.
