cddstamps on stamps

my thoughts on stamps, stamp collecting, philately in general and maybe a few other topics !

Friday, April 19, 2019

Sometimes you just have to say, ok! so they were desperate for a stamp design theme - maybe this is one of those times. 10 years ago, issued in 2009 to commemorate “Roadside Attractions”, yes they were desperate for a topic I guess, or someone had just visited Australia and seen the 2007 stamps issued to commemorate “Big Things”.

I am not making this up. Seriously, Australia issued a stamp set in 2007 of 5 stamps with the theme “Big Things”. Embarrassing as far as I was concerned.

Anyway, Canada Post obviously wanted to out-do the Aussies but only found 4 Big things in their 2009 issue.

And this “Giant Easter Egg” found on the roadside in Vegreville in Alberta was one of them.

Don’t believe me read this actually very interesting

I used to live in Canada, then Australia, now Philippines. Surely Philippine Post will not follow suit!

Don’t eat too many chocolate Easter eggs and have a lovely and safe holiday weekend.

Best wishes Michael
