Do you know why robins are associated with Christmas? Back in the Victorian era, the newly established postal service dressed their employees in red coloured attire and they soon heralded the nickname of ‘Robin Redbreasts’ after the bird. They also delivered on Christmas Day and throughout the festive season, which birthed the association with Christmas and the little red-bibbed bird we love so dearly.
