Notes from the Past

Christmas Topical Collections

Collectors form "Topical" collections in so many groups and subjects these days that it has occurred to me whether there are stamp collections arranged on the Christmas theme?  Probably those who collect according to Biblical subjects could readily assembly such a collection.  And are there collections of covers and related philatelic material with Santa Claus and other Christmas corner card advertising of older days?  I have heard of none and it may be possible that such envelopes are scarce, though perhaps I have not been around enough where they might be seen.  I would be very glad to hear of these collections and
particularly of older covers of the type mentioned.  such material would likely provide interesting and appropriate reading matter in STAMPS each year when the Holiday Season approaches.
