Norway issues Christmas stamps showing the country's popular fictional character Putti Plutti Pott, whose story has been broadcast on television each Christmas since the 1970s ...
Christmas stamps can often give us an insight into how the season is celebrated in different countries and that’s certainly true of Norway’s latest set showing the character Putti Plutti Pott.

According to the popular Norwegian story, which has been televised at Xmas for decades, Santa’s grandson Putti gets into all kinds of trouble when he steals Santa’s beard and is transported to our world.

The new stamp shows the character with his friends in the background, while a second Christmas stamp features a photograph of members of the Sølvguttene Boys' Choir.
