Oh you can have a card, Strenchen.
I can always draw matchstick figures on it. That would be more intelligable than my handwriting.

It's great seeing how things are related to a good cause and that something is being done about it.
Mary looked really relaxed at this event. Weird outfit but love the coat.
Thank you for all the pictures.

In only a few weeks there will be deadlines for sending Christmas mail to Greenland and certain other parts of the world if receipt before Christmas is to be guaranteed so that may be a contributing factor.

Yes, because of the Christmas cards there is an increased amount of mail in the post, so in order to be sure that the Christmas cards will reach the recipients before Christmas, there is a deadline.

Wow, I didn't know that. Suppose that's quite pragmatic. Thank You.

You can see a table of dates for Greenland here for example http://www.postdanmark.dk/cms/da-dk/...faeroeerne.pdf - as you can see certain parts of Greenland have really early dates. For Narsarsuaq it was already on Oct. 18, a lot of other Greenlandic places have deadlines early in November depending on their location and whether posts and parcels are delivered by airplane or ship. So the Christmas seal has to be revealed early

I think it's somewhat of an anachronism. The main reason - today - is to garner some attention towards sending christmas greetings, accumulating more profit for the postal service, more than a logistical issue. There are so many planes etc. going around the world, that it's hardly an issue anymore. Sure, if you got family near Thule Airbase - but that hardly merits nationwide news-bulletins.

You may be right!
Then Post Danmark. what used to be the Royal Danish Mail Service, is an anacronism in itself.
Certainly in the way the service is managed! It appears they belive they still live in an age where the postal service was alone on the market.
Hmm, the amount of mail is dropping. What to do?
Got it! Reduce the number of post offices, cut the days the post is delivered by one day (actually two as one day is dedicated to delivering advertising material rather than regular mail), increase the postage and make sure more parcels disappear.
- There fixed it. Now the costumers will surely send more mail.

First of all Post Denmark does not profit on the sales of the christmas seal. Quit the opposit. Secondly with the amount of mail dropping as fast as it does, there is only one thing to do, and that is to cut back on costs. That is not bad management. Quit the opposit

They have to, now.
Privatisation of what was then Danish Royal Mail, just as the privatisation of the railroads (DSB) was a major mistake in my opinion.
An efficient infrastructure, mail and public transport being part of that, is expensive but essential. Mail service is not supposed to create a surplus, it's supposed to enable others to create a surplus - who then pay taxes to cover the expenses for the state.
Less than ten years ago we could fully expect a letter to be delivered the day after it was posted. (Sundays excepted). That's no longer the case. And it's become much more expensive to post a letter.
I'm old enough to remember when trains on time was not a joke. - As a Dane, you do of course know Olsen Banden På Sporet. It wasn't that satirical in my childhood.

If a business annoy their costumers by increasing the costs and cutting down on the service, it's not a sound policy in the long run, it's a death struggle. And that's what the postal service is doing now.

I know for sure, that some of the postcards, that I sent last time I was in CPH, never reached their goal :( And the postcard that I sent in Denmark (not abroad) took 3-4 days.

Thanks, Florencia
The man, Mary is seen greeting with a big smile, is Ole Henriksen. He has become a household name here in DK over the recent years.
He currently lives in California with his man. Ole Henriksen established his own brand of skin creams and Mary is one the users of his products.

There is a little twist in their relationship however. You see Ole Henriksen was used to dealing with Hollywood celebs and he initially mentioned Mary in the same line as other of his celeb users. And using a royal as advertising is a big no-no! So he was put on ice by the court on the spot.
Apparantly he apologized and after a period he (and his products) are inside in the warmth again.
- I have a translation of that story in my archive in case anyone should be interested.
