Christmas?

クリスマス図柄、たぶん

2003 Turkey

Not in familiar Christmas colours, also from Turkey where Christians account for less than 3% of the population – still, this stamp has something of the atmosphere of Christmas. Holly leaves and small fruits? Seasonal tree, anyway.

Have a peaceful Christmas. Here in the UK we are in tight lockdown – even so, we will celebrate it with a roast dinner.

色はクリスマスっぽくないし、イスラム教徒が人口の97%を超える国、トルコの発行ですが、やっぱりこれはクリスマスを祝っていますよね?ヒイラギの葉と実は今の季節感とぴったり。日本では「柊の花」は初冬の季語だそうです、、漢字も「木篇に冬」でした。

よいクリスマスをお過ごしください。ここイギリスはロックダウンの真っ只中ですが、例年と同じ鳥の丸焼きで祝います。
