Merry Christmas to Everyone!
Perfect in time for Christmas my self-sent postcards came back with special postmarks.
The first one shows a Bauble. Baubles were first produced in the German town Lauscha in 1847 and soon became an export hit. Today they belong to the most popular Christmas ornaments.
With a matching stamp:
Christmas (issued 30-11-2016)
with a special postmark from Bodenmais
The second one shows a beautiful Christmas illustration.
Annunciation to the Shepherds (issued 02-11-2016)
with a special postmark about the 50th anniversary of the Christmas Post Office in St Nikolaus
