Get your Christmas stamps ladies!
Here is the Canada Post 2009 Holiday Season Suggested Mailing Dates
It's getting there...time to line up your postage stamps!
Last year, I stopped by the post office early in Nov to ask for stamps, holiday ones please....I was too early! Fine, then when I came back a couple of weeks later, there was such a line-up at the post office. Finally, when it was my turn - they didn't have any christmas stamps left!
So far, I have repeated this....I was too early but I will skidaddle over tomorrow - no line-ups that I can see yet.
Anyways....does anyone out there have someone in their lives that sends really, really 'early' cards or presents?
We used to have a relative that we'd receive her gift - late October, lol! I know she wanted to have them arrive safe but I used to laugh because as soon as we saw a parcel in October - we just knew who sent it and what it was! The best part was that the parcels were for my daughter....and right on the parcel, for customs purposes, would be a clear explanation as to what the parcel contained! Oh my gosh, you know how kids can grab a parcel....that beat you to the door first anyways, and so my daughter would see: "gloves and scarf" before I did. And if I beat her to it....well, its hard to keep a gift hidden from Oct till Dec 25, ha ha!
Oh, the memories! :) I'll have to share some more before soon. Holidays really do - do - funny things!
