I’ve decided to honour National Day’s Not Saints days but all the odd, weird, funny National Days we hear about on the web.
So today is #NationalDay of the Newspaper Delivery Boy or Girl.
Newspaper Delivery Day celebrates the life and hiring date of Barney Flaherty, who was the first newspaper carrier (or paperboy), hired in 1833 by Benjamin Day, who was the publisher of the New York Sun Newspaper at the time.
When some of the Family Clan were younger they delivered the local free paper, we used to get over a thousand delivered to our house on a Tuesday that had to have all their leaflets in & delivered by Wednesday night. Great during the holidays but not good on a cold winters school night.
Did you or your children deliver newspapers?
