So does the United States deliver mail on Christmas Day? No, mail is not delivered on Christmas. No, I could not sugar coat it any other way, sorry. You’ll have enough sugar come the holidays, trust me. Unless your dietary restrictions advise you not to, then my bad. But I devised a strategy to help make delivering packages simplified.


Here are some deadlines to follow to make sure packages arrive on time:

  • December 15 — USPS Retail Ground™
  • December 20 — First-Class Mail®
  • December 21 — Priority Mail®
  • December 23 — Priority Mail Express®

All post offices and federal offices will be closed this Christmas, as well as the following day, Monday. Here is a list of carriers that will not be delivering mail, including their holiday schedules:


Some additional holidays on which mail is not delivered include:

  • New Year’s Day
  • Christmas
  • Labor Day
  • Independence Day (July 4th)
  • President’s Day
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • Columbus Day
  • Memorial Day

This might serve as a big holiday reminder not to save getting those presents for the last minute. Get it done!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
