Happy World Post Day!

Whaddya know? It's World Post Day! Who knew? I didn't, 'til I just read about it on the Postcrossing blog.

Universal Postal Union on World Post Day

Happy World Post Day from Postcrossing

I hear that many countries celebrate this in various ways with special postal releases, goodies from the post office, etc... but I saw nothing on the U.S. Postal service website. Do we just not play nicely with all the other countries celebrating World Post Day?

  5. Hello,

    I just found your blog today, just splendid!!
    In France,i have recently met a department of the french post office http://www.laposte.fr/emotionducourrier/, they try to promove the writing of letters.
    I have recently open on Facebook ( 5 members ) a place, kind of think tank, to think about a co-creation, an event about writing letters, around the world, if you want to help me:

  6. Jean Elie - That French post office site you linked looks fantastic! I cannot read French, but snippets and the graphics give me an idea that it must be wonderful. I am playing around with Google Translator and exploring the site in some degree of translation to English - wow! I wish we had something like this. It makes me wonder if letter-writing is more common in France now than here in the USA.

    I do not do Facebook (or MySpace or any social networking sites), but I wish you luck with your facebook group.
