Estabilished in 1989 by the Local Post Collectors Society, World Local Post Day is the last Monday in January, which happens to be today. You'll find a number of local posts doing special stamps and cancellations in honor of today. You can read previous L.W.A. articles on local posts around the world here & here.
And, almost as in celebration, the U.S.P.S. issues its new Global Forever Stamp today. $1.10 for the first ounce, anywhere in the world. "The Global Forever stamp offers a single price for any First-Class Mail International 1-ounce letter to any country in the world. For the January 27, 2013, price change, the Global Forever stamp may also be used to mail a 2-ounce letter to Canada." --Beyond the Perf I find that to be a confusing statement. Can I send 2-ouncers to Canada with this stamp all the time or just on January 27th? It's probably all the time, but that sentence is weird, no? Anyways, behold the circular glory!
