As everyone starts to get ready for Christmas, many of us will think about writing Christmas cards.

Royal Mail has added a festive twist this year, and is introducing a ‘singing’ postbox in Cardiff to serenade people when a letter or card is posted.

The postbox plays one of a selection of three Christmas-themed ditties when a letter or card is posted.

These range from the sound of sleigh bells, to a jolly season’s greeting from Father Christmas.

The singing postbox on Queen Street is one of four ‘singing’ festive postboxes being launched across the UK.

You will be able to visit the Cardiff postbox throughout December.

Delivering Christmas is our absolute priority this December.

In the process, we enjoy any way we can add a little extra fun (and festivity!) to posting Christmas cards this year.
