Today is World Post Day. It was originally set up to bring an awareness of the services that mail delivery companies from all over the World provide to both homes and businesses. Over 150 countries take part and some use it as a time to treat their staff for good work.
Who remembers that feeling of seeing loads of post come through your letterbox on your birthday? It’s not quite the same now that it’s all texts and Facebook posts. At a time when so much of our correspondence is done electronically, let’s use today to make someone else’s day at the same time. Here’s a few ideas to start you off with 7 Ways to Celebrate World Post Day. I’d love to hear if anyone else has more ideas.
1. Get some nice paper, a decent pen and write a love letter to your partner or loved one.
2. Send a thank you card to a parent telling them some of the lovely things you appreciate them doing for you.
3. Make a postcard from a photo that you’ve taken locally and send it to a friend or family member who doesn’t live nearby, or someone who’s moved away. Just to say hi.
4. Write a note to a friend reminding them of some of the funny memories you have together.
5. When you go to the Post Office to buy stamps take the postmaster a pack of biscuits or box of chocolates to share with the staff on their tea break.
6. Keep an eye out for your postman or post lady today and offer to make them a cup of tea or coffee.
7. Offer the use of your loo to your postman/lady and tell them it’s an ongoing offer not just for today. My husband used to be a postman and believe me it is most welcome.
During Blogtober, I will be posting more celebration days and random acts of kindness. I hope that you’ll join me.
