On 8th November 2011, Jersey Post issued six stamps depicting Christmas Tree Decorations. The tradition of decorating trees at Christmas began centuries ago. Decorations which started with sweets, gingerbread, nuts and paper roses, were followed by tinsel and a huge variety of miniature dolls, instruments, glass beads, baubles and so on, remaining to this day an indispensable part of Christmas celebrations.

A comment from reader…. 

The article is about philately. It’s a nice one. But the author of this article is more of a business person rather than a professional philatelist. Budding philatelists, who cannot assess the exact value of a stamp get cheated by these people because they sell stamps at a very higher price in online portals like ebay. These guys are not at all professional and they tend to cheat newbies by playing cheap tricks. Beware !!!! In fact I am an enthusiastic philatelist, got cheated by these people badly. I lost around $ 70 because of a damaged item they've sent and refused returns. It was my first bitter experience till date.
