Cpost International is presenting its traditional emission of December stamps. The theme of this year is the Nativity Scene.
The first nativity scene was created by St. Francis of Assisi in 1223 in Greccio, Italy, in an effort to promote the true meaning of christmas and worship of Jesus Christ. His idea became a worldwide Christmas tradition.
These scenes generally contains the same elements: the Christ child in a manger; His mother, Mary; His earthly father, Joseph; shepherds; angels; various barn animals; and sometimes three wise men. The nativity is a precious and ageless symbol of unity and peace, it evokes the miracle of Jesus conception, his humble birth, his ultimate sacrifice and the gift of everlasting life to those who believe.
Cpost International wishes the community of Curaçao, a happy holiday season, and a new year of health, happiness and prosperity.
