The 12 Days of Christmas Stamps 2013: #5, Monaco (1978)

I love this stamp released by Monaco on 8 November 1978 picturing a girl holding a Christmas card and surrounded by symbols of the season plus various toys.  This style of design, coupled with the line engraving, always catches my eye and is quite common among the stamps of France of her colonies in particular.  Check out the cat and mouse in the lower left corner.
