Halloween Postage StampsOf all the special events in the year, you could think of Halloween as the naughty boy, or rather, the naughty girl of days. The fact that so many countries now have commemorative stamps for Halloween, further legitimates this day as having, or regaining, its special place in the calendar. We like these stamps because they are funny and frivolous, when we see them on an envelope it reminds us of the season ahead.
Stamp CollectionsThe English royal family have one of the oldest stamp collections in the world. Queen Victoria's second son 'Affie', began the collection back in the 19th century. Later King George V added to the royal stamp collection, and today Queen Elizabeth is a keen philatelist. One of the strength of the royal collection lies in its completeness, another feature is the accompanying drawings and proofs of commonwealth stamps.
