Christmas 2014: Letter from Nikolaus Germany (Postcode 49681)

6th January 2015

This was return letter from Nikolaus. Based on Wikipedia, Saint Nicholas also called Nikolaos of Myra was a historic 4th century Christian saint and Greek Bishop of Myra. He had a reputation for secret gift-giving such as putting coins in the shoes of those who left them out for him, a practice celebrated on his feast day – St Nicholas Day and thus became the model for Santa Claus whose modern name comes from Dutch Sinterklaas, itself from a series of elisions and corruptions of the transliteration of “Saint Nikolaos”.

The postmark of Nikolaus is very beautiful with angel.

You can take a look for Nikolaus on the paper card.

Inside of card has handwritten a Christmas massage for me.  

Thanks Nikolaus!
