World Post Day is the anniversary of the Universal Postal Union (UPU), which started in 1874 in Switzerland. 
This was a great day for people who wanted to send letters
to anywhere in the world.

Instead of national systems who had to establish
connections which each country individually, finally there was a post delivery system that operated on a global system.
