Advent – Day 5

Merry Christmas image – from the collection of Julie Goucher, 2021

A few years ago, I stumbled across a rather nice set of mugs made by Spode. Each Christmas, from 1998 until 2004, Spode released one mug featuring a Santa from a different Country.

Here they are in more detail:

  • 1998 British Santa released (first of set)
  • In 1999 German Santa released
  • In 2000 Bishop of Myra was released
  • In 2001 Russian Santa released (Missing from my set 😦
  • In 2002 Norwegian Santa released
  • In 2003 French Santa released
  • In 2004 American Santa released (last of the set).



I think of all the set that I currently have my favourite is the American Santa, because of the vibrant, festive colours. Which one is your favourite?
