Happy National Thank a Mail Carrier Day

February 4th is National Thank a Mail Carrier Day

When I think of Mail Carriers, I think of two things. Cliff Clavin on Cheers, and the postal carriers who must have had a good laugh at the things that my mom used to send through the mail, like artificial roses, Easter posters, Champaign glasses, etc.

At a TEDx event, one of the speakers talked about the power of a written letter to change lives. She said that the amount of letters/correspondence being sent via US mail had dropped 50% thanks to digital media. Still, come rain or shine, we have our mail delivered to us by our trusted Mail carriers. I think they deserve thanks!

Here are some facts about our US Postal Service:

  • In 1775, the Second Continental Congress established the Constitutional Post–the first organized mail service in America.
  • As the nation’s first Postmaster General, Benjamin Franklin established many of the conventions we are accustomed to today.
  • Postage stamps were invented in 1847.
  • On April 3, 1860, the famous Pony Express officially took off.
  • In 1863, free city delivery started, and in 1896, free rural delivery began.
  • In 1963, the Zip Code began. 

 

I like to think of a mail carriers delivering our t-shirts to customers!  Especially the white ones!  All our white t-shirts are $4.00 off until end of July! 

Here is a funny clip of Cliff Clavin from Cheers. Enjoy!
