It's the time of year when the sound of post coming through the letterbox doesn't just correlate to a drop in your finances (and your tummy).

Forget the bills, it's Christmas card time! And in a digital age, getting that written card or letter over the festive season can be even more welcome.

But with many friends and relatives dotted all over the globe, keep an eye on the last posting dates so that they'll actually arrive by the 25th.
