Wallace & Gromit's Christmas

This year the Royal Mail December stamps feature Nick Park's detailed claymation portrayals of Wallace and Gromit's Christmas. Here is the one for European postage. We are all enjoying sticking fun stamps of all values on envelopes and soon our Christmas cards. The stamps are very small so the Royal Mail's set of postcards are great for seeing all the detail. Have you put up your Christmas tree yet?  Every time I passed the garden landscaping firm round the corner from my house they seemed to be getting fresh deliveries of fir trees.

Every family have their own Christmas tree traditions so as one would expect Wallace is in charge of tree decorations while Gromit hands over the baubles.  The fairy/angel is always the last thing on top of the tree but the arch nemesis of the Aardmans Animations film 'The Wrong Trousers',  Feathers McGraw, has got there first.  Even arch nemesis enjoy Christmas.

I saw all four of the Wallace & Gromit stamps on the cover of Linn's Stamp News last week. I had no idea they were such popular characters.

Wow! I am an Aardman fan and these stamps are superb. Wonderful details. I love the pinguin as the tree peak. Happy PFF!

I don't know if those characters are ever seen in the U.S. I hadn't heard of them until I saw a postcard with the stamps on Postcrossing. I especially like the card with all the stamps.
