Door 10

As promised, a chicken.  It’s not often you come across a Christmas Chicken, but that’s definitely what we’ve got here.

Pieter Huveneers, Christmas Chicken post early from 1956 vintage GPO poster

Every time I look at it, my brain says Easter, but the words very definitely say Christmas.   Most peculiar.

Anyway, it’s another design by Pieter Huveneers, it’s from 1956 and it’s inexplicable.  Unless you know different.

    It’s surely a cockerel not a chicken and an allusion to the cock crow that starts the day early for those unfortunate enough to hear it.

    I’m sure you’re right, but the whole thing still makes me think of Easter rather than Christmas…
