NZ Post has launched a new Christmas campaign, which is a charming celebration of the little white lies it’s only acceptable to tell at Christmas. After all, we all want to make sure there’s no spoilers before the big day.

In the playful tale we watch a New Zealand Post courier helping to keep the magic of Christmas alive, by conspiring with a family’s game of Secret Santa. The endearing courier goes above and beyond to keep their ho ho secrets, hush hush. Their covert exchanges are all brought to life with a little help from a classic Fleetwood Mac track, sung by a local choir for bonus festive points.
