HAPPY World Postcard Day – Celebrate by Sending White Rock Beach & Wildlife of Canada Postcards

Some people might think postcards have gone the way of dinosaurs because of the internet and email, but postcards are thriving and much sought out by tourists and local residents, young and old alike. They are being mailed around the globe or sometimes being put into photo albums.

What started as a small idea last year, slowly grew into a real worldwide campaign that connects not just postcrossers but everyone that is happy to find a postcard in their mailbox at the end of the day… which is basically everyone we know! The humble postcard celebrates its 151st anniversary today, and so this is the perfect date to throw a party in honor of our favorite means of communication.

So many of you have enthusiastically welcomed the idea of a World Postcard Day, and it’s been a joy to see it come to life. The #worldpostcardday hashtag on Instagram is brimming with pictures of all the lovely postcards and activities you’ve put together. Lots of you have printed Leandro’s postcard which we’ve made available last month.

Teachers everywhere have been downloading the lesson plan which is now available in several languages thanks to helpful postcrossers. Who knows how many children will write their first postcard today!

Lesson Plan – World Postcard Day.pdf (English)

Even during this atypical year filled with lockdowns and social distancing, a few postal services, museums and libraries joined the initiative issuing special postcards and cancellation marks, showcasing postcards online, or finding ways to safely involve local communities in the festivities — you can find more details about them on the Events page. Some of these events take place online, so do check them out!

Whichever way you choose to celebrate the day, make sure to send a few postcards and brighten someone’s day. We wish you all a very happy World Postcard Day — the first of many to come! 🎉

PS – We’re off to write some postcards ourselves now, but you can catch us on the World Postcard Day booth’s chatroom at Virtual Stampex, and also later today at the Spink Auditorium there, where we’ll be talking with some postcard enthusiasts — tune in at 4pm London time (GMT+1) to hear us blabber about the joys of postcards! Don’t forget to bring your favorite postcard as well, as there’s a chance you’ll get to tell everyone about it at the end.
