Today is Neither Rain Nor Snow Day, which is actually not a day about the weather. It’s a day to remember the opening of the New York Post Office building in 1914, since the inscription of the side of the building is “Neither snow nor rain not heat nor gloom of night ,stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”
Personally I never send letters through the Post Office anymore (unless I’m writing to Santa) but I almost wish I did. As a kid, I dreamed about what it would be like if I had a really cool pen pal in another country, or maybe a pen pal who was a famous actor or writer. These days I would love to pen pals with J.K. Rowling (who wouldn’t?!)
Which author would you want to be your pen pal?
