Royal Mail have introduced Christmas postboxes with ‘an elfy dose of festive cheer’, with the four special postboxes producing the sound of elves hard at work whenever an item of mail is posted.
First introduced last year, four festive postboxes will be decorated and 'filled with elves ready to respond once a letter or card is posted.' We're not sure of the Health and Safety (or should that be elf and safety?) implications of putting the poor elves inside, but it certainly brings some fun to this frantic, festive time of year!
The festive postboxes are decked with festive designs, and respond to post with the sounds of elves hard at work.
Mark Street, Head of Campaigns for Royal Mail, said:
“At Royal Mail, we play a key role in delivering Christmas across the UK. While doing so, we always enjoy adding a little extra festive fun to sending Christmas post.”
The festive postboxes are situated in the following locations:
- London: Greenwich Promenade, King William Walk, London, SE10 9HT.
- Cardiff: 29 Queen Street, Cardiff, CF10 2AH.
- Belfast: 4 Wellington Place, Belfast, BT1 6GE.
- Edinburgh: 137-141 High Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1SG.
Do let us know if you find one of the postboxes!
