I have quite a number of these in various form. Still need to sort through a batch of 100-200 Scandinavian ones, and have a selection of those from USA. I may have some scanned already, but will take a while to sort them out if I haven't. But if you're patient I will do it.

Here's some Scandinavian Xmas seals


But I said I had an unsorted bundle. Here's some of it. Now when I have a couple of weeks to spare ......



This not the full bundle by any means!

Looking for something different I just stumbled on these Denmark Xmas seals from 1962

An illustrated map (there must be term for this sort of map) of the old trades of Denmark. Each stamp can stand on its own, but each is a crucial part of the whole.

You can read the full story behind the stamps

Nice stamps - but maybe I am also biased. I have quite a lot of newer Danish Christmas stamps, from the 80 s and 90 s, but they are stored at my mothers house. I should try to find them some time.
I also have some from Greenland. When I was a kid, You used to get a sheet if you wrote a letter to julemanden (santa claus), who as everyone (at least anyone in Denmark) knows lives in Greenland.

Those are very nice designs.  I will try to get some of my collection up here over the next few weeks.

A few more for the archives 1933. 1934, 1942, 1948, 1962

Anyone know if Crippled Children was multi year? No date showing (.....looking at the Daffodils I think they may be Easter seals - not Christmas).

I have some other Crippled Children seals, but laying my hands on them is not an option. They are 'somewhere'. Whether mine are from the same source, or whether this title is generic is unknown. I have no doubt that several years ago the wording was changed/updated.
