Frohe Weihnachten!

MerrChristmas to Everyone!

On Tuesday I got my two German Christmas cards with special postmarks.

The first one shows Santa Claus with a big Lebkuchen heart. Lebkuchen is a traditional German baked Christmas treat. It consists of a big part of nuts and is usually covered with chocolate. The most famous types of Lebkuchen come from Nuremburg, Aachen and Basel.


Stamp:
Christmassy Chapel (issued 02-11-2017)
with a special postmark of this year's Christkindlesmarkt in Nuremberg


The second one shows Castor and Frippe preparing for Christmas. Castor and Frippe are two children's book characters created by Lars Klinting, who appeared in seven of his books.


Stamp:
Attendance of the Three Kings (issued 02-11-2017)
with a special postmark from the Christmas Post Office in St. Nikolaus
