Sometimes you just have to say. ok! so they were desperate for a stamp design theme – maybe this is one of those times. 10 years ago, issued in 2009 to commemorate “Roadside Attractions”, yes they were desperate for a topic I guess, or someone had just visited Australia and seen the 2007 stamps issued to commemorate “Big Things”. I am not making this up. Seriously, Australia issued a stamp set in 2007 of 5 stamps with the theme “Big Things”. Embarassing as far as I was concerned. Anyway, Canada Post obviously wanted to out-do the Aussies but only found 4 Big things in their 2009 issue.
And this “Giant Easter Egg” found on the roadside in Vegreville in Alberta was one of them.
Don’t believe me read this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vegreville_egg actually very interesting
I used to live in Canada, then Australia, now Philippines. Surely Philippine Post will not follow suit!
Don’t eat too many chocolate Easter eggs and have a lovely and safe holiday weekend.
Best wishes Michael
