CC449.....Merry Christmas Chickadee

It's a Stamp Thing: Color Challenge.Merry Christmas Chickadee (Vicki Burdick - justcrazy on SCS)

Aww. I want to put him in my pocket to warm him up! I remember seeing a QI episode where Stephen Fry said that Robins are on Xmas cards because in the 1880's postmen were called 'redbreasts' due to their red uniform. They were really noticeable at Xmas time because they were delivering Xmas cards -  so now we have the Robin 'Redbreast' on Xmas cards. Nice little bit of info!
