About Christel...

Hello world,

please put the date on your postcard, and don’t worry too much about what you send, I will like any postcard because there is a large variety out there and getting a postcard from YOU is wonderful. if possible please don’t cover the publisher of the postcard. I file my postcards by the maker.


I retired from the postal office in 2017 but kept my profile name, "Die Christel von der post", that is German for “from the post office”, not my real last name, but it is my real first name. was born in Luneburg, Germany the year that movie was released👍. my mom's folks settled there after WWII and my dad was from Berlin. her parents and siblings immigrated to the US first and then we followed in 1959. still speak and understand German but can't write or read unless you PRINT.

I have a great sense of humor, so funny cards are perfect for me. please use an envelope if it doesn’t cost you more, because the card sometimes arrives damaged. Postcrossers in the US, if you find the 9/11 Memorial “TearDrop” in New Jersey on a postcard I would love it. Postcrossers in Germany, do you have a postcard of a bridge in Wuppertal painted to look like Lego bricks

If you have any extra little Pokémon trading cards, please send them along in an envelope for the most precious granddaughter❤️

I actually live in Sister Lakes that does not have it’s own post office so I get my mail at a nearby town.
