So this is one of the heaviest days for the Post Office people mailing millions of cards and letters and presents for the holidays ....... 960 million items today alone......... I'm thinking I just saw a nice picture of a Postman on my continuing sort through my hard drives........ Yeah....... so I'll put that up today to recognize the increased burden on them all and just to recognize that we owe them at this time of year especially........

U.S. Postal Service Holidays facts:

232 Number of years the U.S. Postal Service has been delivering holiday cheer.

19 billion Number of cards, letters and packages to be delivered between Thanksgiving and Christmas

3.4 billion Number of letters mailed over the holidays.

82 million Average daily number of First-Class cards and letters mailed.

960 million Number of pieces of mail processed on Dec. 15, the busiest mailing day of the year.

700 million Average number of pieces of mail processed daily.

There is only one slight problem when I come to look at this image again......... hehehehe......... he is not a postman or Mail Carrier as people say round here......... hehehehe....... he is a train driver....... hehehe........ oh well I guess these guys are extra busy ferrying people home in the Holidays....... hehehe....... they deserve a mention too....hehehe !!!!!! :-)))
