Icon215 Virgin Mary watches over Chilean mail

Comment: My son has recently moved to South America (Chile) and I have
been told my numerous sources (by about a dozen or so people) that I need
to glue/tape pictures of the Virgin Mary or Jesus on the boxes/packages
mailed there. They say they are less likely to have the packages stolen,
opened or tampered with.

Chilean mailmen: dishonest, careless and superstitious.

You have to love those guys.


BTW, it reminds me of a friend who once was allowed to visit his grandma in East Germany, and sent me a postcard with Lenin's portrait... just to make sure it would pass the GDR mail's censorship.
