The Royal Mail's New Christmas Stamps

The Royal Mail's 2006 X-mas Stamps
London - Santa looks like he has stopped for a toilet break on one of this year's Christmas stamps.

The collection, on sale on Tuesday, shows Santa sitting on top of a chimney.

The collection has upset the Church of England, which claims they contain no Christian message.

There are snowmen, reindeer and a Christmas tree but no Three Wise Men, no manger and no baby Jesus.

A church spokesperson told the Mirror: "We regret the Royal Mail have decided against continuing last year's welcome return to Christian-themed designs."

Royal Mail said its stamps swapped between religious and non-religious themes each year.
