     Christmas Mail to Baby Jesus is a unique project organised by the Slovak Post in collaboration with its partners and a major part of the most wonderful festivities of the year. It is thanks to the Slovak Post and this program that children can send their secret wishes, ideas for presents, drawings or greetings to Baby Jesus at the address “Ježiško 999 99”. 

     Since the project launched, more than 2 million letters from children all around the world have been sent to Baby Jesus. An actual reply from Baby Jesus plus a little surprise in the envelope never ceases to provide joy and delight in children’s hearts. 

     Every year the Slovak Post chooses one young artist’s special drawing dedicated to Baby Jesus to become the inspiration for the following year’s Christmas postage stamp. For more information on Christmas Mail to Baby Jesus, visit the website www.vianocnaposta.sk.

     The 2020 occasional postage stamp from the series Christmas Mail was inspired by two drawings. The central concept came from the picture “Children and Christmas Star” created  by Kristína Gubienová from Komárno. The motif of a Snowman by Radka Ptáková from Turany was the inspiration behind the FDC. The design of the Christmas FDC postmark depicting a Angel is based on a drawing by Nela Šoučíková from Banská Štiavnica. All the artwork was chosen by the Postage Stamp Design Commission from drawings sent to the Christmas Mail 2020, which were sent with their letters as part of the Baby Jesus project. The graphic design was done by master of art Boris Meluš.
