- PROJECT: SOAR STAMPS
On November 10, 2011, An Post issued a SOAR Pair of stamps in celebration of Christmas.
These stamps, which are on the 'Stamps on a Roll' format, feature decorations that are traditionally hung on a Christmas tree. One shows colourful baubles, while the other shows Christmas stars. The star symbol has long been associated with Christmas, as the three wise men were inspired by a star that led them to Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus.
