WATCH: Australia Post’s sweet Christmas ad is warming hearts across the country

“Spread the Merry this Christmas” – that’s the message from Australia Post’s adorable new Christmas ad that is warming hearts around the country.

The video, which is encouraging Australians to be more thoughtful this festive season, features a young boy named Alfie who tries to get his elderly and lonely neighbour to take part in the holiday celebrations.

Despite constantly refusing the youngsters kind gestures, Alfie doesn’t give up on his mission to spread the Merry… Does he succeed? You’ll just have to watch the video below to find out!


Australia Post’s CMO Amber Collins says all it takes is a small act of kindness to make a difference.

“This year we are encouraging all Australians to Spread the Merry by making somebody’s day special,” Ms Collins said.

“Christmas is a time to connect with friends, family and community and the campaign demonstrates how Australia Post makes it easy to reach out to more people.”

Australia Post Executive General Manager Nicole Sheffield encouraged Aussies to add “just one more person to their Christmas list”

“It really is about joy and I think if we could just add one more person to our Christmas list, this will be our best Christmas yet,” Ms Sheffield told Today Extra.

“It doesn’t have to be anything big, just a card, something small, just that personal touch, and remembering someone will mean a lot.”

Australia Post delivered more than 40 million parcels in December last year, with even more deliveries expected to be made this festive season.
