The unofficial holiday honors people who deliver mail or post directly to people's homes and places of business.

Old Mail

Historians believe that people were hired to deliver royal letters and decrees as early as 2000 BC. The oldest recorded postal document is from Egypt and dates back to 255 BC.

This is a day to acknowledge and thank your mail person and postal worker for bringing your mail to you everyday, rain or shine, and also for not being intimated by your neighbor’s mean looking dog.

Thank Your Mailman Day is also known as National Thank Your Mailman Day in the U.S.

How to Celebrate?

  • Say hello to your postal worker and thank them for their service.
  • If you are unable to meet them in person, what about leaving a little thank you note for your mail carrier in your mailbox?
  • Even better, add a small homemade treat or a bar of candy with the note to show your appreciation.

Did You Know…

…that in 1920, the United States Post Office banned sending children by post?
