Here are some important dates for your festive calendar including the last posting dates for Christmas 2021

Advent Friday (Nov 26th)

Advent Friday is the last Friday to post your advent calendars.

It’s also the last day to order any advent calendars from Cards and Gift Wrap to arrive in time for Dec 1st. Remember you can always send them direct to the recipient and if you’d like me to include a message I can do that for no extra cost, just ask.

Festive Friday (Dec 3rd)

Festive Friday is traditionally the day that businesses and many individuals write or post their Christmas cards.

The great thing about writing your cards on this day is :

  • you can tick it off your list
  • share the experience with thousands of others around the country
  • no worries about cards arriving in the post after Christmas, well before last posting dates for the UK

Send a Letter to Santa and get a reply! (Dec 10th)

Here is a message from Santa via Royal Mail:

Dear Children,

Are you looking forward to Christmas this year? I certainly am! Christmas is a very exciting but busy time for me.

  • The elves are busy making toys
  • The reindeer are practising their sleigh runs
  • And I’m busy preparing my list of who’s been good.

I will be getting my sleigh ready for the long journey on Christmas Eve. In between I will try and reply to as many of you as possible.

Please send your letters to:
Santa/Father Christmas
Santa’s Grotto

If you’d like a reply – post your letter before Friday December 10th 2021
