Is it the Post Office’s pen on President’s Day?
Are you still waiting for Grannies Christmas cookies? Maybe the rare, classic Pokemon card you ordered online will arrive any day now. Perhaps you’re looking to send something to a friend for an upcoming birthday, perhaps you’ll want to know if President’s Day interferes with anything like that. After all, President’s Day is February 21 this year.
Why would it though? What is President’s Day? Well, Presidents Day was originally established in 1885 as a way to honor George Washington, the first president of the United States. Since then, the holiday has changed to include all presidents, the living and the deceased. Due to the range of the date, it has become a federal holiday.
Now, what is a federal holiday? A federal holiday is a day commonly observed by banks and government organizations. Most privately owned businesses do not observe this date. So is the US Postal Service open on President’s Day?
No, it’s a government run organization and they do celebrate Presidents Day. That means not only are post offices set to close, but any and all USPS mailing will also be halted. Sure, they deliver mail during rain, sleet and snow, but a federal holiday? Is not. Gotta gets to rest and relax.
When will the mail service resume after Presidents Day
So you just found out that the post office is closed on Presidents Day (and literally any holiday), and that means you can’t send or receive gifts. Is there anything you can do about it? Well, most delivery services like UPS are also closed, but you can always overpay for same-day shipping if you’re desperate. If not, you’re better off waiting to ship your items until Tuesday.
After all, mail will only be paused for a day.
