We arrived back in Norfolk yesterday to a mountain of post. This comprised mainly Christmas cards: 41 altogether. As I cut round the stamps I thought it would be interesting to compare the numbers of first class, second class (and no stamp at all).
Of the 41 cards three had a first class stamp; 30 second class; and eight had no stamp (being hand delivered). What else can I say? Second class outnumbered first class by 10:1. More people used Christmas stamps than definitives. Nearly 20% of the cards were hand delivered. (I have realised that the last three sentences sound like the setup for a logic/maths exam question.)
First class: 1 definitive (Queen's head only); 1 "religious"; 1 "non-religious".
Second class: 19 "religious" from 2020; 2 "religious" from previous years (I believe); 8 definitive; 1 "second class up to 100g"
