National Postal Worker Day

National Postal Worker Day on July 1st recognizes postal workers all across the nation and encourages us to show our appreciation. Thank the numerous men and women who work consistently and diligently to deliver all of our mail. These employees suffer some of the harshest working conditions, yet continue to persevere six days a week.

Across the United States, postal workers walk an average of 4 to 8 miles carrying a full load of letters and packages, delivering them promptly to each of our doorsteps. Approximately 490,000 postal workers across the United States head out each day to our residences and businesses. Regardless of the weather, postal workers deliver all week long. Even when temperatures fluctuate from extreme heat and cold, the mail arrives. In the rain, sleet and blizzards, too, the mail gets delivered.

Besides severe weather, dealing with unusual packages is also part of the job. In 1913, the postal service started delivering packages up to a maximum of 11 pounds. The most surprising package to arrive for delivery was a small child. Barely under the weight limit, James Beagle was mailed. For a cost of 15 cents, a postal worker delivered young Beagle to his grandmother just a few miles away. This practice continued for just over a year. By then, the postmaster general put regulations in place prohibiting it.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalPostalWorkerDay

While celebrating the day, take time to thank your local postal worker. Encourage others to get the word out and to focus on making every postal worker’s day just a little bit better. You might even consider giving your carrier a gift card as one way to say thank you.

On social media, use #NationalPostalWorkerDay to give a shout out to your favorite postal worker. Whether they deliver, sort, or keep things organized, July 1st is their day.

NATIONAL POSTAL WORKER DAY HISTORY

A Seattle-area postal carriers established National Postal Worker Day in 1997 to honor fellow employees.

https://nationaldaycalendar.com/national-postal-worker-day-july-1/

National US Postage Stamp Day

On July 1st, National US Postage Stamp Day recognizes the ease and simplicity with which we can send and receive mail. A stamp represents payment for the delivery of a letter or a package.

The United States issued its first postage stamp on July 1, 1847. At that time, stamps were not required. A letter could be mailed without a stamp and delivery paid for by the recipient. In 1855, the postage stamp became mandatory.

Philately is the study of stamps and postal history. Stamps often have a fascinating history. Everything from the inspiration and the artist to the postal rate in a given year affects the value of a stamp. Collectors look at quality and rarity as well.

While the digital age may have slowed the flow of snail mail, it doesn’t reduce the excitement associated with receiving a letter or a card in the mail. A handwritten note in an envelope with a postage stamp in the corner holds so much more charm than most of the emails people receive. A colorful postcard from an exotic location or missive with crayon-drawn artwork improves one’s day when it comes delivered by a familiar postal worker.

Birthday wishes that come via text message or social media are one thing, but an unexpected delivery through the mail in a bright envelope brings more smiles than all the likes in the world.

HOW TO OBSERVE #USPostageStampDay

Put a stamp on it! Celebrate the day by mailing a letter or postcard to someone you know. Visit the Classroom Pages for a variety of postcards you can download and print. You can also start a stamp collection. If you’re creative, design your own stamp. Post your designs and collections on social media using #USPostageStampDay.

If you mail or ship packages frequently these Digital Scales can help you with more accurate shipping costs.

All those who celebrate Canada as their home and native land celebrate Canada Day on July 1st. The day commemorates the anniversary of the Constitution Act, which consolidated three territories into the single nation of Canada, way back in 1867. That’s right — Canada celebrated its 150th birthday in 2017!

CANADA DAY ACTIVITIES

Bust out the Canadian flag!
No Canada Day celebration is complete without the Canadian flag, be it hung from a window, draped from the shoulders, or painted on the face!

Whip up some Canadian delicacies
Canadians love to celebrate Canada Day with traditional Canadian foods, whether it be Poutine, Baklava, or beaver tails (deep fried bread dough with cinnamon and chili).

Get out to a Parade
Many Canadian cities will hold Canada Day parades, complete with fireworks, street food, and full marching bands. There's nothing more Canadian than getting out and celebrating with your neighbors.

WHY WE LOVE CANADA DAY

It coincides with personal freedom
Canada Day roughly correlates to America's Independence Day — but many Canadians get the additional gift of personal freedom, as most leases in La Belle province expire on July 1st.

It's the perfect excuse for a cold one
British Columbia alone guzzles 1.2 million—yes, million—liters of beer over Canada Day weekend (all purchased from official government run liquor stores, of course).

It kicks off History Week
From 2013 onwards, Canada Day has marked the beginning of Canada History Week—which encourages citizens to learn more about their nation by visiting museums, monuments, and memorials.

World UFO Day

“I want to believe.” These are the words of notorious X-Files hero Fox Mulder, who convinced an entire generation that the truth is out there – we just have to find it. But on July 2, it won’t only be sci-fi enthusiasts trying out their ET sleuthing skills, as everyone on planet earth will have to opportunity to celebrate World UFO Day. UFOs have been the stuff of legend for centuries, but it wasn’t until the 1950s that freaky flying saucers grabbed national and international mainstream attention. Since then, UFOs have captured the minds of old and young alike, and witness’ stories have proliferated around the world. World UFO Day serves as a way for everyone to come together and watch the skies on the same night in search of UFOs, but that’s not its only purpose. Many see the holiday as a way to spread knowledge and awareness of UFOs, making a case for their existence, and hoping to make disciples out of the dubious. So why July 2? For many, this date represents the anniversary of the famed and all-but-confirmed 1947 incident in Roswell, New Mexico. Believers claim a UFO crash landed here, deep in the American southwest, but that the government has been covering it up ever since. What do you believe?

WORLD UFO DAY TIMELINE

1952
Birth of 'UFO'

The term ‘UFO’ for Unidentified Flying Object was coined by US Air Force officer Edward Ruppelt

July 1947
The Roswell Incident

Farmers in Roswell, New Mexico report hearing a large crash, and later citizens recover wreckage of what is purported to be a flying saucer.

1561
Nuremberg Sightings

A broadsheet reports widespread sightings of a celestial phenomenon over Nuremberg.

WORLD UFO DAY ACTIVITIES

Have a “Welcome to Earth” party
In case you needed a reason to throw a party, there’s plenty of opportunity here. Alien and UFO costumes are simple and funny, while the food ideas are endless. Alien cupcakes with green icing, red jello with rocket ships suspended in the middle or even prepackaged moonpies are all great ideas. For an older-earthlings party, try mixing vodka, blue curacao, grenadine, cranberry juice and sours for a Purple People Eater cocktail.

Do some investigative research
There are more than enough stories, legends and actual scientific findings on UFOs and space exploration to keep you busy for a day. Use the power of the internet to separate fact from fiction, and try coming up with your own theories on whether the truth really is out there. Finish the evening by gazing up at the stars before going to bed. You never know what you might see.

Have a UFO movie marathon
Depending how far you want to go back, try watching a few UFO films from different eras. The Flash Gordon-types of the 30s were genre-defining. The Martian marauders story typical of the 50s and 60s may be a bit campy for you, but you could have some friends over to watch them a la Mystery Science Theater 3000, and let the heckling begin. Or settle in for the visually stunning films of the last few decades - take your pick, sit back, and blast off.

WHY WE LOVE WORLD UFO DAY

It’s a chance celebrate the strange
No matter who you are, everyone is given a pass to think laterally, creatively, and perhaps even a bit unconventionally on July 2. World UFO Day encourages us all to challenge accepted knowledge, and for once, maybe it’s okay for our minds to be off in space.

It’s a testament to technology
What do smoke detectors, water filters, treadmills and memory foam all have in common? They were all born from ideas NASA has come up with during its space exploration research, and this innovation is only getting started. The more we research advanced, space-age technology, the more discoveries we’re making that impact our daily lives.

It’s given us some stellar movies
Awareness of UFOs has led to some of the box office’s greatest hits in the last few decades. As interest in space exploration and extraterrestrial life lifts off, we can expect Hollywood to keep up with the times. While UFO movies were once designated as strictly campy sci-fi, films like Alien, Arrival and Interstellar have sent their popularity through the stratosphere.

National Stay Out of the Sun Day

Hang up your beach towels, don your coziest attire and prepare for an all-day Netflix marathon, because believe it or not, there’s a national holiday devoted to staying indoors. National Stay Out of the Sun Day falls on July 3 each calendar year and encourages us to give our skin a much-needed break from the sweltering heat. Although one doesn’t technically need to be indoors to avoid the sun, any excuse to lounge around the house for a lengthy period of time can (and should) be taken full advantage of. Moderate sun exposure will provide you with a healthy, all-natural dose of Vitamin D, but spending too much time basking in the sun speeds up the aging process. Whether you opt to spend this holiday relishing in the great indoors, or relaxing in a hammock in the shade — we’ve got a couple of ideas to help you celebrate.

An American airman creates a formula that will later become Coppertone Sunscreen. Meanwhile, a Swiss chemistry student goes to market with Gletscher Crème (Glacier Cream), inspired by a sunscreen he got while climbing in the Swiss Alps.

NATIONAL STAY OUT OF THE SUN DAY ACTIVITIES

Beat the heat by spending the day indoors
The average person has about a million things on their to-do list, so why not use this day as an opportunity to knock some of these out? All those mundane tasks you’ve been putting aside for days, weeks, or even months — now is the time to complete them (as long as they aren’t, get a wicked tan). Yay for productivity!

Find a shady spot to kick back and relax
If you’d rather not spend precious hours of summer cooped up inside, that’s perfectly understandable. You can still stay out of the sun, even whilst being surrounded by it. Take cover underneath the nearest willow tree and enjoy the sights and sounds of nature. Headed to the beach? Grab an umbrella to hoist into the sand, throw on your most fashionable floppy hat, and lather yourself in sunscreen with at least 45 SPF. Remember to stay hydrated!

Hit the gym
Limiting your time in the sun is good for your health, but by opting to exercise instead of subjecting your skin to harmful UV rays, you are participating in an ultimate act of self-care. Give yourself a pat on the back, because you deserve it.

WHY WE LOVE NATIONAL STAY OUT OF THE SUN DAY

It incites us to take care of our skin
Despite the fact that your epidermis is constantly regenerating, it’s important to protect your body against ailments like dry skin, sunburn, and skin cancer. The best way to prevent these conditions from occurring is by staying out of the sun. There’s no such thing as a healthy tan — any time spent in the sun, even if you lack a sun burn to show for it, can ultimately damage your skin.

It keeps us youthful
The single leading cause of premature skin aging is extended exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light. If you want to keep the wrinkles at bay and maintain your youthful appearance as long as you possibly can — avoid spending long periods of time in the sun. If this isn’t possible, make sure you don a broad spectrum UVB/UVA sunscreen.

It leaves time for other exhilarating summer activities
There are a hundred and one ways to celebrate summer that don’t involve direct sunlight. You can see a movie, visit a long-lost friend, volunteer at a local animal shelter, grocery shop (hey, some people find this fun), etc. Find something that intrigues you and go for it!

We took Texas' most humble food, Spam, and have taken it to new levels! In honor of the Fourth, our NewTexas Certified Pitmasters have been up all night delicately smoking and searing Spam by the industrial containerload to bring you this delightful breakfast treat. This will amaze you, peeps! First, we gave it a good ol' smoke in a combination of apple, mesquite, and hickory, and when the smoke ring was just right, we sliced it thinly and gave it a quick sear so it is all browned up and about ready to fall apart. We double-layer the Spam on a big ol homemade flour tortilla, top it with a thin layer of scrambled Texas Grade A eggs, top that with more Spam, more scrambled, more Spam, and top it off with a generous handful of Texas-made Monterrey Jack cheese. It is more of a Spam, Spam, Eggs, Spam, Eggs, Spam & Cheese Taco at this point. You better believe this is a gut-buster. The drones may be a little wobbly carrying this one. Remember, a whole egg in every taco!® Today's Special Salsa, like last week's, is Homemade Pico de Gallo and Cilantro. The taco is hermetically-sealed in a Stay-Warm® pouch that is wrapped in the same ol' aluminum foil we are all so familiar with for our breakfast taco. We are trying to keep it real, peeps. For your beverage accompaniment, a packet of Sanka, Tang and a Lipton Tea bag will be included with every delivery as well as salt and pepper and two napkins because this one is messy. Yes, it is different, but it works and you do not even have to leave your residence. Woo! And, watch out for the drones! Start your day off the right way; munch out and go back to sleep. You know you want to!®

Stay Safe Texas. Stay Well.

Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen of Texas!

Happy Fourth of July Texans!

We are lucky to be born in and live in a country that is famous for its rich culture and traditions. We should make this Fourth of July memorable by counting the blessings that we have received and appreciating our hard earned freedom. Before we celebrate our freedom we should remember those who laid down their lives for us. Let us celebrate our heroes today and never forget the blood, sweat, toil and all the incredible sacrifices that they made to bring us our freedom and peace.

God Bless America!

Today is:
Independence Day
National Barbecued Spareribs Day
National Caesar Salad Day
National Hop-A-Park Day

Quotes of the Day:
“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”
- John F. Kennedy

“Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.”
- Thomas Jefferson

“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.”
- Woodrow Wilson

For nearly 250 years, the country has been celebrating a day in history that inspires us still today. On July 4th, communities host speeches and ceremonies across the nation. Across the country, people crowd cities for parades and festivals. Cities deck the streets in red, white, and blue bunting and flags.

Families and friends also gather for some of the most mouthwatering food – large picnics and barbecues, local fairs provide a taste of culture and mom’s home cooking, too. With so many converging on their hometowns, family and school reunions take place.

Fire Works
Before the day is over, many communities hold spectacular fireworks displays re-enacting moments of victory. Patriotic music accompanies the performance while spectators view the show from blankets strewn along capital lawns or from boats floating in bays. Whether our National Anthem, “The Star-Spangled Banner” or “God Bless America,” many will sing along. In some locations, music will be played by a live orchestra or band, while in other areas it’s pre-recorded. Some of the most popular on the playlist are “America the Beautiful,” “My Country, Tis of Thee,” “This Land Is Your Land,” “Stars and Stripes Forever,” “God Bless the U.S.A.,” “Yankee Doodle” and “Dixie.”

In some parts of the country, people will shoot their own fireworks while children delight in the bright colors and sparklers. They roast marshmallows and make s’ mores.

HOW TO OBSERVE #IndependenceDay #July4th #4thOfJuly #FourthOfJuly

Spend the day celebrating independence. Attend local events or travel the nation to see friends and relatives.

At noon, a “Salute to the Union” is fired, each July 4th, by any capable military base. This is a salute of one gun for each state in the United States.
In 2009, New York City hosted the largest fireworks display in the country.
Held since 1785, the Bristol Fourth of July Parade in Bristol, Rhode Island, is the oldest continuous Independence Day celebration in the United States.
Share your celebrations using #IndependenceDay, #July4th, #4thOfJuly, FourthOfJuly on social media.

National Hop-A-Park Day

National Hop-A-Park Day on the first Saturday in July creates an opportunity to explore the parks in your area and learn more about your community.

Celebrate the nice weather on a holiday week while enjoying the public parks, green spaces and outdoors as much as possible. Another benefit of the day is getting away from technology, televisions, and our phones. While you’re out, take a stroll or throw a frisbee around. Many parks are centerpieces of our communities making it possible for many who don’t have a yard to enjoy time in some outdoor space. As you’re enjoying the space, visit with neighbors, savor a picnic lunch, or read a book you’ve long been wanting to dive into.

How many parks are in your area? You might be surprised. Urban planners across the country continue to develop green spaces that fit all residential needs. This commitment leads to more parks overall and a healthier society.

Being able to access green grass and hear the birds singing in the trees positively impacts our daily lives. Playing outdoors and expanding our lungs, making human contact in an open space, in nature sweetens life a little every day. Parks bring nature to us.

HOW TO OBSERVE #NationalHopAParkDay

Celebrate by visiting the different parks in your area. Support your local parks by keeping them clean, too. If you pack it in, pack it out or use available receptacles for trash and recyclables. Pack a lunch and bring a friend Post on social media using #NationalHopAParkDay.
