As is customary
for the festive season, Magyar Posta is celebrating Christmas with a regular
stamp issue. Stamps with a face value of HUF 85 (for domestic picture
postcards), HUF 110 (for domestic priority picture postcards or non-priority
standard letters) and HUF 140 (for domestic priority standard letters) are
being released to send the season’s greetings by post. The stamps are available
as self-adhesive individually die-cut stamps in sheets of 50 stamps and in
miniature sheets of 5 stamps. The motifs of the stamp designs are pieces of
traditional iced ginger bread. We recommend a Christmas postcard set consisting
of a miniature sheet of five HUF 85 stamps together with five festive picture
postcards which are also decorated with ginger bread motifs. The products will
be available dependent on stocks at large post offices and Filaposta in Hungary
from 5 November, but may also be purchased from Magyar Posta’s online store.
This year customers will once again be able to send their Christmas greetings to loved ones far away cancelled with the postmark of the village of Nagykarácsony, whose name means Christmas in Hungarian. Different Christmas postmarks will be available during the weeks of Advent between 1 and 26 December 2013. The service is available at any post office.
