The 12 Days of Christmas Stamps 2013: #9, Solomon Islands (1983)


imageI have always been interested in stamps from islands more than landlocked nations and those located in the Pacific have always been high on my collecting want list. In my new-found fascination with Christmas stamps I most enjoy those that portray the holiday traditions that I miss from the U.S. and Europe. However, sometimes a stamp catches my eye that pictures celebrations far removed from those that I associate with the season. A great example is this lovely issue from the Solomon Islands. Released in August 1983, I just love the image of Hula dancers under the Star of Bethlehem.
