Share This Post

In a delightful twist to the tradition of sending Christmas cards and letters, Londoners are in for a tuneful treat as “singing” post boxes make their debut on the bustling streets of the capital. Royal Mail has revealed that these special post boxes, adorned in festive red and gold hues featuring delightful designs of snowmen, snowflakes, and golden stars, will grace the streets of London, as well as making appearances in Swansea, Glasgow, and Belfast.

One of these musical mailboxes is poised to take center stage on the iconic Oxford Street in London. Beyond the traditional red facade, these post boxes are designed to transform the mundane task of posting into a festive experience. Responding to incoming mail with a burst of Christmas tunes, the post boxes will serenade senders and passersby alike with holiday classics such as Jingle Bells, We Wish You A Merry Christmas, and Deck The Halls.

Local officials have expressed enthusiasm for this festive initiative. A representative from the city council shared their excitement, stating, “We think it’s a fantastic idea and are thrilled to be part of it this year. There is nothing better than sending Christmas cards to friends and family to spread some festive cheer.”

With a twinkle in their eye, they added, “Hopefully, this will encourage people to keep up the Christmas tradition. The singing post box should give our residents and visitors to Oxford Street an unexpected surprise when they send their letters ahead of Christmas Day.”

This initiative aligns with Royal Mail’s acknowledgment of the significance of the holiday season for postal services. A spokesperson highlighted, “This is Royal Mail’s busiest time of the year. December sees about twice as many letters, cards, and parcels as other months.”

They continued, “At Royal Mail, we’re geared up to help with festive preparations, whether that’s delivering the nation’s love and best wishes through Christmas cards or the presents that tens of millions of people will be shopping online for right now. This year we’re adding some extra festive joy and cheer for people sending their letters and Christmas cards to loved ones through our amazing singing post boxes.”

In addition to the musical post boxes, Royal Mail is unveiling a collection of five new Christmas stamps, each inspired by traditional carols. Notably, this marks the first time that the Christmas stamps will feature the silhouette of a royal figure, adding a regal touch to the festive season.

As the holiday season approaches, Royal Mail is encouraging customers to plan ahead. The postal service is advising customers to order their online gifts and complete their shopping well in advance to ensure timely delivery. Furthermore, they are urging individuals to post their festive greetings early, considering the increased volume of mail during this joyous period.

With the harmonious introduction of singing post boxes and the regal touch of royal-inspired stamps, Royal Mail is not only streamlining the Christmas delivery process but also infusing it with a melody that resonates with the festive spirit. As London’s iconic Oxford Street welcomes the musical post box, the city is set to experience the joyous symphony of the holiday season, one letter at a time.
