The Swiss Post has issued a set of three stamps dedicated to the celebration of Christmas 2012.

For hundreds of years, it has been the custom at Christmas to decorate and light homes, streets and trees in festive decoration with lights. Chains of lights crossing streets and arches, shining stars and twinkling globes add sparkle and pleasant anticipation to the dark and pensive Advent season. And with them there are three new Christmas stamps on Swiss Christmas mail.
