Considerations for sending your Christmas parcels
With the ongoing effects of the global pandemic and the surge in online shopping, postal services are facing unprecedented demands and challenges. This means that it’s crucial to send off your holiday parcels as early as possible to avoid any potential delays or disruptions. Plan ahead and take into account the possibility of longer shipping times due to the high volume of packages in the postal system.
Additionally, it’s essential to pack your gifts securely and label them clearly with the recipient’s address and contact information. This will help to ensure smooth and efficient delivery to their intended destination.
The joy of giving: a reminder of the true meaning of Christmas

Christmas is a time for spreading love, joy, and goodwill to those around us, whether near or far. The act of giving and receiving presents is just one way to express our love and appreciation for our friends and family.
As we prepare to send off our Christmas gifts, let’s cherish the opportunity to connect with our loved ones and show them how much they mean to us. Whether through a carefully curated gift or a heartfelt message, let’s embrace the spirit of giving and celebrate the bonds that bring us together.
So, as you prepare to send off your holiday parcels to Alberta or beyond, remember to spread the joy and warmth of the season with every package you send. And may the spirit of Christmas bring hope, love, and unity to all, no matter the distance that separates us.”
