February 4th Thank your Mailman Day.

When : Always February 4th

Thank a Mailman Day is your chance to say thanks to the guy, or gal, who delivers your mail. After all, they are there six days a week come rain or shine. The reliable postal worker is always there doing their job, regardless of the weather.

Did you Know? Pony Express riders were the most famous early American "mailmen". Their motto was " Neither rain, nor snow, nor death of the night, can keep us from our duty". This motto is believed to be taken in part from a motto dating back to ancient times. Among the most popular variation is "Through rain or snow, or sleet or hail, we'll carry the mail. We will not fail".

I know I am completely grateful when they do there job. Aren't you?

Make it a point to catch your mail carrier enroute today and say thank you or if your like me I have no idea what time my mail carrier comes around so put a thank you in your mailbox for them. Give him or her a great big smile if you happen to see them or visit your local post office. But try and acknowledge those who serve us faithfully. Everyone likes to be noticed and thanked for a job that most people take for granted.
