Holidays are as necessary as sleeping. As the saying goes, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”, the holidays are important in the lives of all the workers regardless of their job profile, company, or field. If you are from USPS, you know how few days the USPS holidays 2021. Feel free to use the holiday reference guide that I have prepared to help the customers to know on which days their mail will not be delivered to them.
USPS Holidays Schedule 2021
In the US, a postal holiday is a federal holiday that has been recognized by the United States Postal Service. During these holidays no mail is delivered all over the country. So, if you are waiting for your mail to arrive on one of these days and thinking “Will mail be delivered today?”, then you must know that they do not deliver any package on these days.
However, in some areas, some post offices are functioning on these holidays too, but even those do no deliver your mail.
