In observance of the holidays, Post Offices will be closed Monday, December 26, and Monday January 2. Only Express Mail will be delivered on Christmas Day and New Year's Day in most major metro areas. Post Offices will resume regular business hours on Tuesday, December 27 and Tuesday, January 3, 2012.

The U.S. Postal Service said all Post Offices nationwide will be open Christmas Eve, Saturday, December 24, and New Year's Eve, Saturday, December 31. Most will have shortened retail lobby hours and will close at noon. Each Post Office will post its revised hours of operation for these two days.

Mail delivery for December 24 and December 31 will be the same as any other Saturday, and commercial customers should check with their Business Mail Entry Units for hours of operation.

Customers are encouraged to go online to USPS.com or to call 800-ASK-USPS for information about specific Post Offices. In addition, mail should be deposited in blue collection mailboxes before noon for early pickup on December 24 and December 31.
