Moomin and other postcards

Isn't Moomin adorable?
He came to me all the way from Finland.

The sender writes:
Greetings from Finland!
I just came from work. Here is very windy, cold and dark.
I hope that it's snowing soon, so the world will be more brighter in here!
And I can get right kind of Christmas mood.

These two lovely cards are from Postcrossers in Russia.

The sender of the pin-up girl writes:

The sender of the Postman writes:

Happy Postcrossing!

These three cards are from Postcrossers in Germany.

The senders write, from bottom then to upper right and then upper left:

Hello JarieLyn, greetings from Rostock at the Baltic sea.
We have the oldest University in the Baltic area. 
It was founded in 1479.
My name is Christa and my interests are football and baseball.
I'm collecting stamps, old coins and teddy bears.
All the best.
Happy Postcrossing.

Hello from Germany!
The weather today is cold and (??)
Winter is near.
Love waiting for the first snow.

Hallochen aus Tubingen! (Hi from the Uniersity of Tubingen)
The town is situated in Germany, in Baden-Wurtemburg!
I wish you, JarieLyn R, good luck and much love!
With best wishes from Germany, Eva!

These cards are from Japan and Taiwan, respectively.

The senders write:

Hello! (Konnichiwa)
A postcard from Japan.
I hpe you like it.

Happy Postcrossing!

Dear JarieLyn,
Hello from Taiwan!
I'm Kai, 14.
I like to learn foreign languages in my free time.
I also like to take a small walk in a small park near my home.
I really enjoy being with nature.
The feeling when you're surrounded by trees is nothing but fantastic.
Wish you all the best and happy postcrossing.

A postcard and a note card from two of my penpals.
The postcard comes from The Netherlands and the notecard comes from Illinois.
Out of respect for my dear pen pals, I never reveal what they have written to me.
But I do like to show what they have sent to me.

I've received a couple of letters in the past month but have not photographed any of them.
I have also been sending out cards to various people, but again, I have forgotten to photograph them.
I intend to do my best in the coming days and weeks and months to be more consistent in recording what I send out and to whom.

I love this time of year, especially the closer it gets to Christmas.
