Hellenic Post is celebrating this year’s holiday season with a Commemorative Set of Christmas Stamps issued on 23 November 2020.

This year, the stamps and related products tell a charming Yuletide tale, a magical story that takes us back to the untroubled Christmases of our childhood, with images familiar from those carefree days of innocence.

Nothing can change Christmas, because its meaning and magic remain forever the same.
Even spent at home…
Even with fewer loved ones around us…
Love is invisible and travels everywhere.

On Christmas Eve, children's voices sing carols, spreading the message of the Nativity. Distances shrink, differences are set aside, and a message of love finds a way into people's hearts, sowing the seeds of hope there. Christmas works its magic once more across the world, and the kindly Santa Claus begins his journey.
The dog and the cat know the secret of the Holy Night, as they have seen Santa before. He’s the cherubic old man with red cheeks and a white beard, dressed all in red and carrying a huge sack of presents. The one who comes down the chimney!
They are his co-conspirators, refraining from meowing or barking, which would give him away. They will guard his secret well, proud that he has made them a part of his plan! The next morning, the delighted voices of the children will fill the house as they discover the cookie crumbs on the plate, the half-full glass of milk, and the much-anticipated gifts under the tree. And the two furry friends will laugh along with them, their hearts full of love, their happiness plain to see.

This year’s set of Christmas stamps invites you to send love and hope to all your family and friends, along with the faith that everything will soon get better, that everything will be as it once was.
