Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Postal Worker Day

National Postal Worker Day is observed every year on 1st July to thank and appreciate all men and women who work consistently and diligently to deliver all our mail and packages.

“In June 1788, the ninth state ratified the Constitution, which gave Congress the power ‘To establish Post Offices and post Roads’ in Article I, section 8. A year later, the Act of September 22, 1789, continued the Post Office and made the Postmaster General subject to the direction of the President. Four days later, President Washington appointed Samuel Osgood as the first Postmaster General under the Constitution. A population of almost four million was served by 75 Post Offices and about 2,400 miles of post roads.”

  • Did you know? In the 1870s, Belgian postal workers from the city of Liège attempted to train 37 cats to deliver the post. They were not successful.
