Envelope of the First Day and postcard "Gifts of St. Nicholas" with cancellation Kyiv 12/06/2023
It is noteworthy that in 2023, for the first time, Ukrainians will celebrate St. Nicholas Day simultaneously with the Day of the Armed Forces of Ukraine — December 6. Ukrposhta, in honor of the coincidence of the two holidays, prepared a corresponding charity postal issue. The magician, who in Ukraine is identified with the Christian priest Mykola the
Wonderworker, has been respected for a long time, he is a favorite of children, a patron of students and all those in trouble. His image is revered as a symbol of humanity and high moral values. So it is not by chance that the main character of the Christmas and New Year holidays brings gifts to obedient children, and treats naughty ones with cutlets. In the interpretation of the artist Kostya Lavra, St. Nicholas is a horseman who carries in a camouflage bag the weapon so necessary for the victory of Ukraine, and therefore the enemy will fully bear the well-deserved punishment.
The artist is Kost` Lavro.
