Busy! Busy Bee!

Life is starting to get busy again! With COVID restrictions starting to lift, everyone is making up for lost time. Work trips, vacations, sporting events, family gatherings, anything and everything that people were not able to do this time last year is filling everyone’s schedules.

With all of this craziness coming back into everyone’s lives it can sometimes be hard to remember the little details. One detail for example could be when the Post Office is open or closed. Many people may think that the Post Office is always open because everyone is always getting mail. In reality, this year, 2021, the post office will be closed for ten days. What are those ten days? Well, you do not have to worry about looking it up now because we have all the information that you need right here!

What Days Are They Closed?

  1. January 1 – New Year’s Day
  2. January 18 – Martin Luther King Jr. birthday
  3. February 15 – President’s Day
  4. May 31 – Memorial Day
  5. July 4* - Independence Day
  6. September 6 – Labor Day
  7. October 11 – Columbus Day
  8. November 11 - Veterans Day
  9. November 25 – Thanksgiving Day
  10. December 25* - Christmas Day

You may be wondering why July 4 and December 25 have an asterisk by them. Well, it is because these holidays fall on the weekends so some Federal employees will celebrate the holiday at different times. Independence Day is on a Sunday so some people will be gone on Monday, July 5. Since Christmas Day is on a Saturday, some people will be gone on Friday, December 24.

This information can be very beneficial so your businesses can ensure everything keeps running smoothly. Even though it is just ten days, ensuring that these days do not slip your mind can help keep your customers, employees, and business happy.
