Postcards for the weekend: December Holidays

This weekend's 'Postcards for the Weekend' theme is 'December Holidays'.

The reason of my crashed computer appeared to be an amount of dust in the desktop's ventilation system. So thanks to our vacuum cleaner I am able to scan and post postcards and stamps again!

The coming period I have some days off from work so I can spend my free time... writing cards! There is a delay in my outgoing season's greetings mail, despite of the fact that my computer didn't function during the past two weeks (by which I should have had more free time), and despite of the important message on the following card (thank you, John!).

The back side of the card shows matching stamps:

What else one can do in the December holidays? When there is snow, one could take a sleigh :

(Although made in Danmark and sent from Spain, I discovered the Fox speaks a nice season's wish in Dutch!.. Thank you, Eva, for the great card and matching stamps!)

One can buy some food and make some music:

Put on your best dress:

And while there still is no snow in the Netherlands, this pretty christmas penguin-in-snow was sent to me from Malaysia (thank you, Shufen):

On the back a nice stamp showing, among others, the Tapir, one of my all-time favourite animals, so it is always a great addition, even to a christmas card.

See more December Holidays postcards at and via this weekend's 'Postcards for the weekend'.

  1. I may have sent the message about doing things early but I think this is the first year I've ever done it.

    1. I received your wonderful christmas package, thank you very much, John!!!

  2. Nice when computer problems are easily fixed. No snow here either but it's been unusually warm.

  3. Hurray! I'm happy to know your computer issue has been sorted out :D These are admirable collection of postcards and stamps and nice write-up to match! I hope you're having a great time with love ones during this season :)
