The self-adhesive special stamps of this year's Christmas issue are presented in a glittering and shimmering fashion. They were designed by the third prize winner of a design competition held abroad among Liechtenstein artists.

Designer Annett Höland decided to reduce the graphic design of the four stamps "Glistening Snow" (face value: CHF 0.85), "Sparkling Night" (face value: CHF 1.00), "Candle Glow" (face value: CHF 1.50) and "Tinsel Rain" (face value: CHF 2.00) to key elements. The colourfulness and vividness of the Christmas stamps is achieved by holographic foil printing. The light blue background is reminiscent of the blue shimmer of fresh snow. Fir green and the colourfulness of the hologram foil, which ranges from elegant silver to bright gold and warm red depending on the angle of view, round off the Christmas colour spectrum. All the numerals of the face values hang decoratively from the upper edge of the stamp into the picture with the zeros depicted as Christmas baubles. Arranged as a group on the first day cover, the stamps together form a harmonious and self-contained composition.
