BETHLEHEM, N.H. –
There’s often no room at the post office in Bethlehem, New Hampshire, during the winter holiday season.
“Our volume triples, quadruples. We do not bring extra staff in, we stick to the staff that we have. We just get very busy,” said Brian Thompson, the postmaster in Bethlehem.
The big draw– the seal, known as a cachet. It bears the town’s name, the same name as that of the city where the Bible says Mary gave birth to Jesus more than two millennia ago.
About 60 years ago, the postmaster here had an idea to spruce up Christmas cards.
