New Orleans, USA

this more reminds me of a Hawaiian means of transport than a tram in New Orleans

...and this is actually a St. Charles Avenue streetcar at Christmastime! It just looks so lovely! Though I must admit that for someone living here it is always hard to visualize celebrating Christmas or New Year in such an atmosphere....we are used to the cold and the snow, which in a way is an association to Christmas....I cant imagine celebrating New Year at the beach in a swimming suit...that's just not it would be weird for Australians maybe to celebrate it while freezing cold...though I do think that secretly they would also wish for a snowy Christmas...that's just the spirit of the holiday :)

the clock stamp is more than famous....the other two are both Forever stamps issued in 2011 - first is a Garden of Love stamp from a set of 10, while the other is a Send a Hello stamp, showing Buzz Lightyear and two of the green, three-eyed aliens from Toy Story
