Christianity is a key element of life for Niueans, and locals celebrate Christmas just as those in many other countries do – by spending time with loved ones, sharing food and gifts, and reflecting on the traditional Christmas story.

Issue information

In the Christmas 2019 stamp issue for Niue, the nativity scene was created out of paper and coloured pencils, showing various characters from the Nativity includng Mary, baby Jesus, a wise man, a shepherd, the Christmas star and a donkey.

This charming stamp issue comprised four gummed stamps: 30c, $1.40, $2.00 and $4.00. The figures have been made from everyday materials that families and children may use at school or at home, in a fun and creative telling of the Christmas story. Each stamp reads ‘Monuina e Kilisimasi’ - Merry Christmas in Niuean.
