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?

Jersey 2020 Lighthouse Stamp

On April 7th 2020 Jersey Post issued a set of six stamps in the EUROPA 2020 theme, “Ancient Postal Routes”. Since Jersey is an island, mail ships were an important part of those ancient postal routes. The 54p stamp clearly shows La Corbière Lighhtouse.
