  • Postal holiday

    serch.it?q=Postal-holiday

    In the United States, a Postal holiday is a Federal holiday recognized by the United States Postal Service, during which no mail is delivered. Though letter carriers have the day off, some postal workers are forced to work on holidays, such as clerks dispatching mail, or those working in plant distribution facilities. Some plant facilities operate 365 days a year. Part 608, section 3.2 of the DMM (U.S. Domestic Mail Manual) groups holidays into "Widely Observed" and "Not Widely Observed". Holidays "Widely Observed" include New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veteran’s day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. Holidays "Not Widely Observed" are Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Birthday; Presidents Day; Columbus Day; and Veterans Day. If a holiday occurs on Sunday, service will be observed on Monday.

  • Post office

    General Post Office Building in Shanghai, China. A post office is a customer service facility forming part of a national postal system. Post offices offer mail-related services such as acceptance of letters and parcels; provision of post office boxes; and sale of postage stamps, packaging, and stationery. In addition, many post offices offer additional services: providing and accepting government forms (such as passport applications), processing government services and fees (such as road tax), and banking services (such as savings accounts and money orders). The chief administrator of a post office is called a postmaster. Prior to the advent of postal and ZIP codes, postal systems would route items to a specific post office for receipt or delivery. During the nineteenth-century, in the United States, this often led to smaller communities being renamed after their post offices; particularly after the Post Office Department ceased to permit duplicate station names within a state.
