Schoolgirl Paris Curtis is the face of An Post's Christmas stamps.

This gorgeous picture of Paris, who is from the Coombe in Dublin, was taken at the Mansion House crib when she was just three years of age.

She was photographed dressed as an angel and was singing carols at the time - and it was deemed the perfect picture for the new stamps.

Now aged seven, Paris was on hand for the official unveiling of the festive season stamps, alongside her sister Alannah (17) and granny Theresa Curtis.

She was "over the moon" when she found out that her photo was chosen to appear in the booklet of stamps this year.

Meanwhile, An Post has revealed that it will be helping Santa to reply to as many letters as possible this year, and they want to receive them as soon as possible.

It is a service that An Post has offered for more than 20 years now.

Tens of thousands of letters flood into the GPO every year, en route to the North Pole, with details of exactly what the kids are asking for this year. And the advice to those posting letters is to stick a stamp on the letter.

An Post has advised that children need to put their letter in an envelope, and in very clear writing on the top left hand corner of the front of the envelope, they need to write their own name and address.

Meanwhile, the last dates for posting to the USA and other destinations are fast approaching, according to the company.
