#659 Christmas Cover from Singapore


A beautiful Christmas cover from Singapore, sent by Terence Wong.

2013-03-23 Singapore (3)

This pre-stamped Christmas cover was issued by Singapore Philatelic Bureau. Terence affixed another Christmas stamp on the cover! The cancel contains a Christmas tree and the message ‘post early for Christmas.’ Surprisingly Terence addressed the cover to Aiman and Maryam!! To all readers, Aiman is Maryam’s younger brother by one year. However his size is almost similar to Maryam and many people that we met thought that they are twins! They are both in the same class this year.
