National Thank A Letter Carrier Day is an annual celebration observed on February 4th of each year. We do receive postal letters or mail letters even in this modern tech era. The mailman or the letter carrier are those professionals who travel miles irrespective of the different weather condition. It is they who bring all those letters, precious gifts and every other important detail safely to your hand. These letter carriers are indeed to be acknowledged and honoured with the special date in the calendar. National Thank A Letter Carrier Day is the perfect time to appreciate the letter carriers who carry letters for you.
“Americans have an expectation that the Postal Service will abide by its well-known, although unofficial, motto – a commitment to deliver.” – John M. McHugh
