Early For Christmas

Post Early, by Peter Huveners (1958)
sent by John (the UK)

I think today is the right day to remind (again!) that we should post your mail early if you want they to arrive for Christmas. But, to be honest, I always keep receiving Christmas mail at least during January and February (two years ago, a postcard posted early arrived... in August!).

Most of my Christmas mail arrives in Spain (where I usually spent the holidays). But two festive pieces of mail have already arrived from FinnBadger (the USA). 



The envelopes are made of a shopping bag and a catalogue (Which is funny because I also used catalogues to made some envelopes this year). And that original Christmas tree is actually a barcode tree.

These two letters were sent the same day, but arrived in different days. And, of course, in the inverse order.




An two more Christmas postcards have already arrived.


I love Christmas trees. But, as every child in my country... the arriving of the Magi is the most expected part of the holidays!
