I have not been really active with swapping postcards of late as I’ve one too many preoccupations, but I managed to swap a couple of cards over the course of 2 weeks and look what I got in the mail recently along with the lovely card ~ this lovely Pasko 2014 stamp, which was recently released in our country.
Here is a brief description about the Pasko 2014 stamps from phlpost.gov.ph:
Block of 4 stamps depicting the Filipino Christmas in artwork and when put side by side in a block of four, the four stamps form the Filipino lantern in the middle.
- Stamp 1 features the new born Jesus with Mary and Joseph in traditional Filipino clothing
- Stamp 2 features the all time favorite Christmas caroling
- Stamp 3 “Pagmamano”, a symbol of respect for elderly Filipinos
- Stamp 4 is an illustration of the traditional Noche Buena or the Christmas Eve feast of every Filipino family
Thank you so much Raine for sending me the lovely card along with the stamp. Hopefully I’d be able to get some of these stamps when I visit the local Post Office to send some cards next week.
