Here's proof there's a day for everything. Saturday is the “4th Annual Shake Your Mailbox Day in Michigan” So, get out there and shake that mailbox, so that you know it can stand the hardships of winter!

One of the biggest challenges that a mailbox faces is the snow removal operation. Plows take a heavy toll on mailboxes during the season and if your isn’t firm in place, it could be easily displaced. It is also a good time to check the hinges on the mailbox door and tighten the screws that secure the box to the post!

So, get out there and “shake, shake shake that mailbox” Saturday!
