Poll: Do you still send Christmas cards by post?

Give it to us straight. Be honest.

IT’S THE MOST wonderful time of the year again – remembering to get the stamps and envelopes together to send Christmas cards to extended family and friends. An Post has just released its seasonal reminder of last posting dates for letters and parcels to arrive on time for Christmas. In case you are a card-sender, we’ll be helpful and put those here:

  • Standard post letters and parcels in Ireland – by 20 December
  • Standard post letters and parcels to Northern Ireland – by 19 December
  • Standard post letters and parcels to Great Britain – by 20 December
  • Standard post letters to Europe – by 18 December (parcels by 13 December)
  • Standard post letters to USA – by 12 December (parcels by 7 December)
  • Standard post letters and parcels to rest of world – by 7 December

But will you be sending a bunch of Christmas cards this year at all? Standard postage stamps are now €1 each after all.

Poll Results:

Yes, I will as I always have (4795)
Yes, but fewer than in previous years (1340)
Only a very small few (1055)
No, but I never did (684)
No, not this time (628)
