The short answer to this question is NO. Thanksgiving is the time of year where we all join together and put all of the BS of 2016 behind us for a day. It’s the time of year in which we all get to make believe we are turkeys and stuff ourselves silly. Yay! I’ve been working on my eating game all year and finally my hard work pays off in less than three days. Anyways, back to the question of whether mail will be delivered on Thanksgiving.
All post offices and federal offices will be closed for the holiday. Below is a list of carriers that do not deliver this upcoming Thanksgiving. I also posted the rest of their 2016 holiday schedules, so be sure to take a look and advantage of that!
- USPS is CLOSED, holiday schedule.
- FEDEX is CLOSED, holiday schedule.
- UPS is CLOSED, holiday schedule
Some additional holidays on which mail is not delivered include:
- New Year’s Day
- Labor Day
- Independence Day (July 4th)
- President’s Day
- Martin Luther King Jr. Day
- Columbus Day
- Memorial Day
We all know this holiday to be the one that brings us together as a nation. It has been a tough year so let’s reach out to those who are less fortunate and make them feel like family too, because in America we are all family, especially on Thanksgiving. So with that being said, I hope everyone stays safe, warm and enjoys the comfort of food, family, and friends this holiday.
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
What Is Thanksgiving?
Thanksgiving is a national holiday celebrated on various dates in Canada, the United States, some of the Caribbean islands, and Liberia. It began as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Similarly named festival holidays to occur in Germany and Japan.
