Christmas Day 2016: Does The Mail Run Today?

In case you’re too distracted with all the shopping and end of the year party invites, it’s time to get your holiday mail sorted ASAP. You don’t want to count on the postal service delivering your Christmas present on Christmas Day or else prepare to suffer the consequences of paying an arm and a leg for expedited shipping. Give yourself the gift of foresight by observing the holiday schedule of your trusted postal workers.

Does The United States Deliver Mail On Christmas Day?

Sorry to break it to you, but the only mail you’re getting on Christmas Day is from Santa. All post offices and federal offices will be closed on Christmas, which means you won’t be receiving or sending anything on December 25. Fun fact, all federal workers still get paid while you don’t get any service.

FedEx and UPS will also be closed on Christmas Day and provide modified service on Christmas Eve.

Some additional holidays on which mail is not delivered include:

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

Now, go get shipping! And shopping! Merry Christmas.
