Hanukkah 2016: Is Mail Delivered On Hanukkah?

is mail delivered on hanukkah


This year, Hanukkah begins on the evening of December 24, 2016 and ends on  January 1, 2017. While you could be getting a present every single day of the eight-day holiday (lucky you!), there are three days you should watch out for if you’re looking for mail because those are the days that the postal service is taking a break.

Does The United States Deliver Mail On Hanukkah?

All post offices and federal offices will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, which means you won’t be receiving or sending anything on December 25, and January 1. Fun fact, all federal workers still get paid on these holidays.

FedEx and UPS will also be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day, and New Year’s Day and provide modified service on Christmas Eve.

Some additional holidays on which mail is not delivered include:

  • Thanksgiving
  • Labor Day
  • Independence Day (July 4)
  • President’s Day
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • Columbus Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Veterans Day

I love going to the gym. I have so much back muscle, I can crack a nut with my back. My friends call me - the nutcracker. They also tell me to join Tinder, as... The Nutcracker.
