The national languages of Wales are Welsh and English, and by law both are treated equally by the public sector. The posters above and below, produced by the Post Office in 1975, reflect this – both have the same design and message, they are just in different languages.

The title of this blog post, Nadolig Llawen, means Merry Christmas in Welsh, and as this is our last blog for 2012 we wish you both a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year (Blwyddwyn Newydd Dda in Welsh).

The BPMA blog will return in early 2013 with posts on the Family History, Drive-in Post Offices, Mail on the island of St Kilda, the upcoming London Underground stamps and much more!
