was October 9, 2018:

and the Greek Post is celebrating 190 years of postal service.

First postage stamp was in 1828 :-) That is of Hermes the messenger for the Greek gods:


England began in 1840 with a Penny Black, and then a Penny Red...

here are a few other postal stampings on this free postcard from 

"HELLenic Post" :

Happy Post Day...celebrating all week long :-)

Wow this is so nice!  A free postcard from the Greek PO. 

I love the stamp at the end.  Or it looks like x2 separate stamps?

The instructions are perfect!

Nice to see a free postcard from the PO, even if the service is sometimes hellish.

Love the instructions on the rubber stamp.
