Dreaming of a White Christmas

And may all your Milkbones be white

Kudos to the postal services of the United States and the Republic of Singapore for delivering this Christmas card intact; it’s only four inches square.  Of course, Ammy, who sent this in, also wished the postman a merry Christmas on the back of the envelope, so it may have gotten special handling.

Ammy writes that, “in Singapore, almost everyone — regardless of race and religion, celebrates Christmas, even the Malays, who are traditionally Muslim by birth (they are born into Islam). In fact, every year, our government decorates a stretch of road in our prime shopping district, Orchard Road, with Christmas lights…. There’s also a contest among the Orchard Road shopping malls, for Best Decorated Mall.”

Merry Christmas to you too, Mr. Postman!

    Glad you liked it! I thought the size was very unique, which is precisely why I bought it. =D I hope the postmen had a good Christmas, which is more than I can say for myself, being sick over X’mas then Chinese New Year again. =P Thank goodness everything’s all peachy now, touch wood!

    […] is the second Christmas card I’ve received from abroad that’s tiny; like the last one (Dreaming of a White Christmas, from Singapore), it’s only four inches square. Too small for postage and address on a single side! Share […]
