PASKO 2020 – CHRISTMAS STAMPS PAY TRIBUTE TO FILIPINO CONTEMPORARY
In celebration of the National Stamp
Collecting Month (NSCM), the Philippine Postal Corporation (PHLPost)
released new stamps featuring “Pasko (Christmas) 2020”, a loving
tribute to all families celebrating together this yuletide season.
Amid this pandemic, Christmas-time is
still celebrated by Filipinos, no matter where they are anywhere in
the end of this extraordinary difficult year, the Christmas stamp
will remind us that spending time together with the Family will
bring much needed respite from the worries and adversity, and
looking forward for better days to come”, PHLPost said in a
This year has been challenging
especially with the onslaught of the Taal volcanic eruption, the
ongoing public health crisis brought by COVID-19, and the recent
devastation from Typhoons Rolly and Ulysses.
Despite the darkness presented by
recent events, light still shines through.
In the face of harrowing grief we are
bound together by our shared responsibility to each other. All of
this, we learned from the basic unit of our society, the family.
The “Pasko 2020” stamps features an
image of the contemporary Filipino family. They gathered around for
support and encouragement, maintaining a positive outlook with the
traditional Parol (Christmas lantern) in the background to
complement the postage stamp.
