Thursday is the last day for first class post to be sent in Northern Ireland, however special delivery runs through to Saturday 22 December.

Every piece of mail that's posted here comes through the Royal Mail sorting office in Mallusk, which is built on a 26 acre site the size of three football pitches.

It's their busiest time of year, as presenter Marc found out when he spent the day helping them get through some of the millions of items they receive.

Have a look at our video to find out how he got on!
