November 12 is Dia del Cartero — Postman’s Day — in México. The country reserves special days for almost all trades; more than 20,000 postal workers have the day off and citizens will give them a small bonus, typically between 25 and 100 pesos, dependent on how good of a job they believe their mail carrier has done and in appreciation of the work they carry out.
