Dec 03, 2013

With greatest winter holidays approaching, Lithuania Post starts marking postal items with special Christmas cancellations. The special Christmas cancellations will be used from December 2 until January 4 at all main post offices and post offices in Druskininkai and Palanga.

With the special Christmas cancellation, both letter post items and parcels will be marked. There is an inscription “Kalėdų paštas“ (Christmas mail) on the top of the cancellation, and the name of the city beneath the inscription. The cancellation date will be seen in the middle of the cancellation mark, and a fragment of a Christmas Town - at the bottom.

All in all, Christmas cancellations will be used at 12 post offices: in Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipėda, Šiauliai, Panevėžys, Alytus, Marijampolė, Utena, Tauragė, and Telšiai Main Post Offices as well as at post offices in Druskininkai and Palanga.

To create Christmas mood, apart from special cancellations, Lithuania Post offers a novelty – seasonal packages. The largest post offices offer for purchase special boxes suitable for sending goods. There are 3 sizes (XS, M, and L) of the packages decorated with seasonal ornaments. The price, depending on size, varies from LTL2.99 to LTL4.69.

The Public Limited Company Lietuvos paštas runs the widest network of postal access points in Lithuania. Lithuania Post provides postal, logistics, and financial intermediation services.
