Merry Christmas!

I imagine that in the ancient world people had celebrated ‘longing daytime’ when they realise that – three or four days after the Winter Solstice.  Then the Christmas had taken over this festive season – this is my inference.

This Bulgarian stamps are in fact for the new year celebration – yet they look very Christmas for me.
