The theme chosen this year by PostEurop for EUROPA stamps is "old toys". So, I'm happy to share with you the nice Russian EUROPA stamp 2015 depicting a carousel made of Dymkovo toys (face value : 23 rubles). Thanks Yuri for this nice cover from Saint Petersburg, the second largest city in Russia.
Yuri has completed the franking with 2 stamps from the 2009 set dedicated to Russian kremlins (= fortresses).
The 1 ruble stamps depicts the kremlin os Astrakahn, and the 6 rubles stamp shows us the citadel of Pskov.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is a fictional male reindeer with a glowing red nose, popularly known as "Santa's Ninth Reindeer." When depicted, he is the lead reindeer pulling Santa's sleigh on Christmas Eve. The luminosity of his nose is so great that it illuminates the team's path through inclement winter weather. Thanks Bryon and best wishes for 2015!
