  • New Year's Day*
  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
  • President's Day
  • Memorial Day
  • Independence Day
  • Labor Day
  • Columbus Day
  • Veteran's Day
  • Thanksgiving Day
  • Christmas Eve*
  • Christmas Day*
  • New Year's Eve*

* when holidays fall on a weekend, they may be observed the preceding or following day as well.

Find a complete list of observed holidays on USPS' website. 

TIP: on non-shipping holidays, you will see a red ALERT at the top of ShippingEasy. The ALERT is a reminder to move ship dates forward to the next shipping date. Learn how to advance ship dates.
