Today is the final posting date for Europe if you want your parcel to arrive by Christmas

Today is the last day to post to European countries if you want your parcel to arrive before Christmas day.

With many of us having family and friends living over seas there will be a huge amount of gifts being sent via post rather than being exchanged in person on Christmas day.

Having loved ones living in other countries myself, I like to keep an eye on the final posting dates to countries outside of Ireland when Christmas rolls around.

The final posting dates were released by An Post last month.

While you can send both cards and parcels all the way up to December 20 for Ireland if you want your loved ones to receive their gifts in time for Christmas you may want to leg it to the post office!

The final posting date for the United States has come and gone but you still have time to get parcels out to Europe and the UK.

Final posting dates for Christmas are:
