Cuba 1954 - Sc 532-33 (EDIFIL 601-02) - 1954-1955 Christmas stamps. Stamps issued to celebrate the 1954-55 Christmas holidays. These are unused, original gum, never hinged, blocks of 4. The 2012 EDIFIL does not price these as blocks of 4 but prices the indivicual stamps at 16,- per set or 64,- (US $ 83.00) for the four sets as singles. Scott prices them at US $ 14.50 per set or US $ 58.00 for the four sets. By the way, the reason why these stamps are inscribed 1954 - NAVIDADES - 1955 is not that they were issued to be used on two consecutive Christmas holidays, but on the same Christmas holiday. This reflects the fact that Cuban kids get presents from Santa Claus on the morning of December 25th (of 1954 in this case) and from the Three Kings on the morning of January 6th (of 1955 in this case) so the Christmas celebration extends from December to January 6th of the next year. We Cuban kids were a lucky bunch back then!
