Christmas 2013

It is hard to believe, but Czech Post was not issuing any Christmas stamp in 2013. We have stamps commemorating unknown or even controversial persons or events, but missing Easter and Christmas. Weird :). I hope that Czech Post will do better in 2014 :).

Anyway, I am very thankful to all of you who sent me Christmas 2013 cover, although I was not able to send the same in return. Thank you!

Hi, my name is Radim, born in a year of Dragon, interested in Botany and loving flags on stamps :). I am collecting nice covers and postcards thaít are addressed to me. And because I love travelling and it is impossible to see all the nice places of the world, I therefore wish to receive covers or/and postcards from as many countries as possible. Just to "touch" the distant places virtually :-).
I will deeply appreciate if you can help me with cover from any of worldwide country. I miss 10(11) countries (+ 2-3 distinct territories) in my collection, but I will appreciate any nice cover from any country sent to my address :)
