Birthdays are customarily celebrated by lighting candles on a cake with candles noting the person’s age plus one additional candle “for next year”. The celebrant blows out the candles while silently making a silent. The celebration is accompanied by the universal “Happy Birthday to you” song.
Definitive Greetings stamps are issued in the My Own Stamp format.
The Israel Philatelic Service’s My Own Stamp project, which began in 2001, is unique to the Israel Postal Company. Many people have already discovered the diverse possibilities of ordering a personal sheet of stamps as a unique gift for events such as birthdays, bar/bat mitzvahs, weddings, new business openings, personal achievements and more; an original and unconventional gift for someone who has everything or as special non-conventional gift for a loved one. With a My Own Stamp sheet anyone can feel like a royal!
The Israel Philatelic Service periodically adds to and updates the My Own Stamp sheet array and expands it to fit more events.
The current selection of My Own Stamp sheets includes greetings/events such as: happy holiday, wedding, good luck, with love, mazal tov and more.
My Own Sheet order forms are available at Israel Post branches throughout Israel. Orders may also be placed online at: www.postil.com. For additional information please call: +972768873934.
