How some public employees wished merry Christmas and happy new year to those people that they had rendered their services.

An article writer wishes everyone merry Christmas

The feature article writer wishes you merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
Think of this as one of those past cards that postmen, street sweepers, firemen, night guards and other public employees brought to their people for whom they had serviced them the year round.
They knocked on every door where they had brought letters or parcels or those who had swept and watered the streets to shine early in the morning and late at night.
The night guard was also a handy man, because he kept an eye in the streets that he was in charge to make sure that burglars didn't break into houses, but they also cried out to neighbours what the weather was like and night owls called at them, clapping if they had forgotten their keys at home, because they had master keys to open every front door.
The firemen were not seen daily, but they arrived promptly in the event of a fire or issue to be sorted out affecting to people.
All of these daily and endearing employees knocked on doors, gave us a card, wishing us a merry Christmas and, of course, hoping to get a Christmas bonus for their services rendered during the year (1)
These employees don't do this custom anymore, but those of past times were to Christmas the same as turkey, champagne, wines, cribs or trees.
Even when emailing seems to have replaced postal services, there are still post offices everywhere and we see the postmen with their loaded trolleys everyday.
From time to time, we hear a bell that tell us that firemen are heading fast to put off a fire or to sort out an awful issue.
Early in the morning or late at night, the council employees go out with their machines to sweep and to water to remove the piles of litter and dirt that people have left during the day.
It is true that on these days we shan't see those night guards, but police cars fully lit, but they aren't as dear as those past night guards that kindly opened one's front door and wished a good night or what was left of it.
Why the was custom was lost is a mystery and I bet that these existing ones would get an extra bit to their shrinking salaries. People understand and are generous with those that provide a good service with a smile.
(1) One will say that they got their salaries and so do the present ones, but public salaries or wages have never been plentiful and all of us appreciate a treat from those to whom we have rendered a service.

The wonderful side of the Christmas holidays is the nice music that is played on the radio and quality time with your loved ones.
