Tuesday is National Thank a Mail Carrier Day


(CNN) — When your mail carrier shows up Tuesday, make sure to pop your head out and thank them. It’s National Thank a Mail Carrier Day!

In honor of the day, here are a few fun facts for you:

  • The first organized mail service in America was established in 1775.
  • Benjamin Franklin was the first postmaster general.
  • Stamps were invented in 1847.
