In the 19th century Victorian postmen were clad in red coats. The post was the “Royal Mail” and red was a royal colour - and it was on the English flag. (You can buy this image on line.) A postman was called a “robin” because a robin’s chest is red as well. People were happy to see a postman coming with their letters. The first Christmas card was sent by Sir Henry Cole in 1843. They were soon very popular – and they are still much loved. There are many legends about the robin and Christmas, and soon there were robins on Christmas cards. Here they are still, with a red postbox.
