USPS, 2022/23

According to the December 2 article "USPS Just Announced These Surprising December and January Closures", this year, the United States Postal Service (USPS) has been closing post offices around the country for a variety of reasons.

On Christmas Day and New Year's Day, the United States Postal Service (USPS) will, as is customary, be closed for the day in order to observe the federal holidays.

The United States Postal Service explained in a news release that was published on December 1 that due to the fact that both of these holidays fall on Sunday this year, Post Office locations across the country will be closed.

As a direct consequence of this decision, the agency will be observing both December 26 and January 2 as federal holidays by closing all post offices on those respective Mondays.
