Christmas Post 2013

Date of Issue : 4 November 2013

Christmas Mail has been organised by Slovenská pošta since 1999. Not only children, but adults as well, can send their Christmas wishes to Baby Jesus at the address “999 99 Ježiško” (Baby Jesus). During the previous 14 years, almost 1,250,000 letters were delivered to the address of the Slovak Baby Jesus.

This year is the 15th jubilee year of Christmas Mail. The postage stamp is based on a drawing by Erika Korkovánová from Kollárovo who won the children contest for the most beautiful drawing for Baby Jesus. Almost 5,800 drawings were sent to the contest announced during the previous year of Christmas Mail.

Very nice Slovak FDC with two Christmas stamps of 2011 and 2012. Thank You very much to my friend !
