Important: Last Post Dates Before Xmas

Royal Mail Last Post Before Xmas

My wife loves spending evenings in front of the telly, surrounded by Christmas cards and gift wrap.

Her ritual begins around mid-November. But if you're not as organised as my wife, then read on!

If we can't get round to visiting all our friends and relatives before the big day, the next best thing is a card or present. And at least we can rely on the Royal Mail and their Last Recommended Posting Dates to make sure we send off  their Christmas cards and presents on time.
