ROBINS: Are a regular feature on our Christmas cards, one of the legends says ‘Long known as the robin redbreast our familiar robin gave its name to the first postmen who wore red jackets and became known as robins. Some suggest this is the reason why robins appear on Christmas cards’. So a big thank you to our postmen who are out in all weathers delivering our awaited Christmas Cards and parcels.
