Germany: Pettson and Findus

MerrChristmas to everyone!


Today I got two postcards from Germany.

One of them shows Pettson and Findus. Pettson and Findus are the main characters in a children's book series of the same, which is written by Swedish author Sven Nordqvist since 1984. Pettson is an old farmer living in the Swedish countryside. Findus is his cat and often behaves like a small child, as he can talk to Pettson and stand up on his two hind legs. The books mainly take off from simple event like gardening or preparing for Christmas. The illustration on the card is from the seventh book of the series, The Mechanical Santa.
I bought this card in my hometown and used it to get a special postmark.


Stamp:
Presenting Joy (issued 02-11-2015)
with a special postmark of the Christmas post office in St. Nikolaus
