    What a fun tradition to have your cards postmarked from a Christmassy city each year!

    Have your Christmas cards postmarked from Bethlehem, Christmas, Nazareth, Rudolph or nearly 100 other holiday-themed communities. These special Christmas postmarks tell your friends and loved ones that you “went that extra mile” to make this season’s greeting special.

    You can get these postmarks without even leaving your own town.
    Just follow three easy steps:

    1.) Place your stamped, addressed Christmas cards in a large envelope or box, labeled “Holiday Greeting Card Re-Mailing.”

    2.) Address to “Postmaster” of the town where you would like your cards postmarked.

    3.) Take it to your local Post Office to be weighed and mailed.

    Most cards, if received by the destination Post Offices for postmarking by December 15 will be delivered in time for the Holiday.
