COMMEMORATIVE SET OF STAMPS “CHRISTMAS 2018”
Πέμπτη, 22 Νοεμβρίου 2018

Christmas is almost upon us. Before long, happy carol-singing children will be spreading the glad tidings in every neighbourhood that “Christ is born today”. These holy days seem to be lit up in a magical way. It isn’t just the brightly coloured decorations or fairy-lights and tinsel. It isn’t just the Christmas windows or lists of presents. It is love, hope and a pure faith in goodness sprinkled like fairy dust over people’s hearts, soothing away their pain and cares.  It is the star of Bethlehem that lights the path of compassion, peace and generosity.  It is the true meaning and magic of Christmas shining in children’s eyes and radiating in their smiles. It is our own recollections that take us back to carefree days of innocence, decorating the Christmas tree, writing a letter to Santa Claus with a whole year’s wishes, posting it and wondering if he has got it yet, then looking forward to the presents under the tree! These are the magical moments conjured up by the Christmas Set of Stamps from Hellenic Post, all four of which will take your cards and letters on a magical journey, spreading the message of Christmas all over the world.
