PASKO 2020 – CHRISTMAS STAMPS PAY TRIBUTE TO FILIPINO CONTEMPORARY FAMILY

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 world.  

 “At 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 statement.

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.
