2020 Channel Islands Christmas Stamps With Lighthouses

It looks like Guernsey and Alderney are ready for Santa! Each issued a set of “Santa’s Visit” stamps on 28 October 2020. One of the stamps in Guernsey’s set shows Santa climbing Les Hanois Lighthouse while Alderney’s version has him flying around Mannez Lighthouse.

Jersey’s Christmas set was issued on 23 November 2020. One of the stamps in this set shows a stylized version of Corbière Lighthouse. Isn’t Santa coming to Jersey?

2020 Guernsey Post and Go Stamps

During the time period from 1 -3 October 2020, Guernsey Post issued Post and Go labels commemorating the 2020 Virtual Stampex show. These are identical to the fishing vessel labels that were issued beginning on 12 Feb 2020 except for the “Virtual Autumn Stampex 2020” overprint. The first label shows Castle Breakwater Lighthouse and the second, Sark Lighthouse. As of the date of this post, these labels are still available through the Guernsey Post website.
