World Post Day!

Hurray, 9th October is World Post Day!

On this day we celebrate postal services, the global network that connects us all together. From remote villages to large metropolis, the mail delivery systems are practically ubiquitous, making sure our messages and parcels are delivered across the world everyday.

All over the world, post offices are celebrating this special day in many different ways! To help you celebrate with them, we’ve asked you to let us know what your own local post office was doing… here’s what you found:

From stamp launches to free postcards, visits to mail sorting centers and letter-writing competitions… there’s something for everyone! 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.

And like last year, we also 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!
