World Post Day!

October 9th is World Post Day!

On this date, the world celebrates the hard work and social contributions of all the postal services… so don’t forget to thank your postman or postwoman for the wonderful job they do! :)

Across the world, post offices are celebrating this special day in many different ways! To help you celebrate with them, we’ve done a little research and compiled all the information we could find in this page:

Check it out to see if your own postal service is doing something special – you might be surprised! If you know of any other activities taking place on this date that we’ve missed, just leave a comment below.

But that’s not all! This year we also wanted to do something special, and so we’ve invited our advertisers to join the celebrations! Many of them accepted the challenge, and created special offers for postcrossers! So if your stock of postcards is running a little low, now would be the perfect time to re-stock… enjoy!

Yes indeed, the Postmen and women of the world are busy people, carrying all our wonderful postcards from my home to yours and from yours to mine. Today I posted 10 postcards and received 13 - long may it continue.
Wouldn't it be great to receive a postcard with the special datestamp from Russia mentioned in the first message of this post?

I don´t think there are any celebrations here in Denmark. Yesterday the last post office in my region closed. Now all we have is a small "shop" inside a supermarket.

Happy World Post Day from Helsinki! Having been a postal worker myself, I know that while delivering mail is also a lot of fun, it can be really hard work as well. So I really appreciate the work that postal service people do. Thank you! I was also really happy to send some special cancellation cards today. :-)

BxlPoster, United Arab Emirates
Did anyone in Western Europe use PostCardPress from Russia yet? The postcards look tempting but delivery times are quoted as "2 to 6 weeks" (to Belgium) - that is of course very long...

Happy World Post Day from Australia. Unfortunately Australia Post has celebrated World Post Day by hiking the cost of postage on Postcards to $1.85 (Asia Pacific) and $2.60 to rest of the world, up from $1.70 to anywhere. Will not be able to afford to send many postcards to rest of world (US, Russia, Holland, Belarus), all those wonderful Postcrossing countries.

Eduaserie, Brazil
Lucky those who live in places with reliable postal services. Unfortunately it´s not the case here in my street in Sao Paulo ( Brazil). Postmen here are careless and lazy.They have ruined several cards sent to me by throwing them on the floor , leaving them outside the mailbox , in the rain.
