Summary
The unofficial motto of the USPS comes from the Persian system of mounted postal carriers in 500 BC.

On September 7th is “National Neither Snow Nor Rain Day” and on this day we celebrate those people who deliver our precious goods to our doorsteps, no matter what the weather is like outside.

This day has its origin in the opening of the post office in New York City on September 7th, 1914. It gets its unusual name from the inscription on the outer side of the building. There, on the colonnade it says: “Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”.
