Approximately 490,000 postal workers are there in the United States. Whatever is the weather, or condition postal workers deliver to businesses and homes all week? In extreme cold or heat, whether it rains, in sleet, or in blizzards, they deliver mail. Isn’t it appreciating work!

World Post Day

Every year on 9 October Wold Post Day is celebrated as the anniversary of the establishment of the Universal Postal Union in 1874 in the Swiss capital, Bern. In 1969, the UPU Congress in Tokyo, Japan. Since then, countries across the world celebrate World Post Day. The main aim of this day is to bring awareness about the role of Posts in the everyday lives of people and businesses and also contribute to global social and economic development.

Earlier, in the past days writing letters and sending messages was the main way to keep in touch. But now it is not so. This is the world of e-mails and online messaging. Earlier, phones were also not available. So, at that time Postal Service has its own importance.
