Cover from Bulgaria no. 5

Christmas stamps were used also on this nice cover sent from Sofia, Bulgaria, two years ago. Bulgaria, just as the Czech Republic, issues only one Christmas stamp, so here are two of them, with traditional religious themes, to reach the necessary postage. The left-hand stamp was issued on 30 November 2005, the right-hand one on 21 November 2008, and is accompanied by the first day of issue postmark. Interestingly, the Bulgarian word for Christmas "koleda" means "carol" in Czech (Christmas in Czech is Vánoce)...

Thank you, Lilia:)
